Hi there. I think the title says it all, but here goes. I'm trying to setup a vpn connection between my pc and a friend's pc (to play lan-games). So, i've setup my part as incoming connection on windows 7, and opened port 1723 on the router for my pc. He setup his part. He can connect. It appears as a connection on my network and sharing center, saying that there is 1 client connected. A new connection appears, with his name and user, that i've created for this purpose. if I double click on this connection (with his name), it says that ipv4 connectivity is not connected, but that the media state is connected. Ive configured my incoming connections item stating that the ip will be given out thru dhcp, and that each client can determine his own ip address. Now, he tried to set his own ip address, it still appears on my pc as connected, he gets the ip he wanted, but it still says here as ipv4 connectivity not connected, and states from his side that the server ip is APIPA (the 169.254 range) What am i missing? thanks.
