I want to set up VPN at home so my friends can access network shares on my LAN and stuff. I have used this tutorial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1s5JxMG06L4&feature=related
so users are set up, and port forwarding on router is done as well. I am using Windows 7 Ultimate, and VPN is set up on this machine. The issue is that my friends cannot connect to my VPN from another Windows machine. When they try to connect it is asking them for user and password but later on after authentication they receive error 720 which says connection could not be established.
When I went to the network connections and then to the properties of VPN (incoming connections) it says no hardware capable of accepting calls is installed.
I understand if there is capable hardware, obviously incoming connections cannot be accepted, but it is so weird for me as I thought VPN does not require you to have special hardware.
