Hi!
    New here at this networking stuff. I am trying to set up a windows PC as a server so that I can access my music while I am up at college. I set up the computer to allow VPN connections, but when I try to connect on my laptop; it doesn't work. Can someone please try and help me in figuring out how to connect my laptop to my desktop remotly!? Thank you so much!!

What are you trying to use, Remote Desktop? You need 3 things to to create a remote location:

1. Microsoft Windows XP Professional must be installed on the computer containing the files and programs that you want to access from a remote computer. The computer must also be part of a corporate network in which Remote Desktop connections are permitted. This computer is known as the host.
2. The remote computer must be running Windows 95 or later. This computer must also have the Remote Desktop Connection client software installed. The remote computer is known as the client.
3. Both computers must be connected to the Internet through a VPN connection.

Look this over:
