Try these things:
1) with the current setup--when you connect, right-click the connectoid icon
down by the clock and choose status, then details tab.
Note the Server IP address.
Do start, run \\serverIPaddress <enter>
You should now see the shared assets of the VPN server machine.
Now--what sort of an IP address was that? Was it what you expected--an
address on the same subnet as the other machines? Or was it a 169.x.y.z
If the latter, go back to the host machine, right-click Incoming
connections, properties, go to network tab, properties of TCP/IP. Change
from automatic via DHCP to giving out a fixed range of IP addresses--say
perhaps 4--on the same subnet as the router and the existing PC's.
If you then get this addressing on the next connection, you should be able
to connect to any of the PC's by IP address.
