I have finally after 3 weeks of research found the simple way of
creating a Windows XP VPN Server. The connection is made with no
problem and I have access to the resources on the VPN server but not
the network.
On the VPN server I did check the box to give permission to network
resource and I also assigned IP from 192.168.0.110 to 192.168.0.150.
All the computers including mine are member of the same Workgroup. I
am sure there is a simple answer to this problem, please someone be
kind enough to answer it or point me to a detailed answer.
Thank you,
Alan.

Hi Alan,

When you said you checked the box to give permission to
network resource on the server, where did you find that
box. I re-did the setup for the vpn through the "create
a new connection wizard" and I did not see that box.
Could you point to where I can find that. I too have
been working on this for many days and still my
connection hangs verifying username/password.

I FOUND THE ANSWER. After I connect to the VPN I ping all of the local
ip addresses to make sure I have a connection. Then instead of using
the name of a drive I use there local IP addresses. This solved my
problem and I can freely map network drives. However, I have a new
problem, it is awfully slow. Is there any way to make it faster? The
VPN server is cable connected and the VPN client is DSL connected.

The speed is dependent on the speed of the slowest links between the
two machines. There is a slight bandwidth loss due to the encryption
and encapsulation overhead...
