After a lot of googling, I have amended sysctl.conf to allow ipv4 forwarding, and my firestarter firewall to allow VPN traffic.

I have port forwarded 1723 in my router Connecting from my vista PC seems fine ... it connects, authenticates, and registers my machine on the network. Checking the network properties shows it has correctly picked up the desginated IP address, However it stops there. Although I can access samba shares by (HowTos)
