Windows 7 VPN Client to host lan with RV220W

title says most of it.

I have set up our network with an RV220W as gateway/Wifi-AP,VPN host.

I am able to connect over the WWW with the windows 7 client laptops no problem, BUT -

I cannot from my office reach out to the laptops, it seems as if the tunnel is one way.

The users can do anything they need, but I want to be able to connect to them to update their AVG or render remote assistance etc.

Ping from client to home network no problem.

Client laptop is invisible to any ping etc FROM the home network.

Re: Windows 7 VPN Client to host lan with RV220W

Hmm no answers yet, perhaps more info:

NOT useing Quick VPN

this is just basic PPTP with the build into windows VPN Client.

The router does apply an IP to the VPN client that is part of the networks subnet:

Office network main systems pool -

office network VPN pool -

subnet mask for the network is

remote VPN client is supplied  so this is in the subnet.

oddly the VPN client displays the subnet

Perhaps this is the root of my problem, but I cannot seem to find a way to adjust this.

The router handles the DHCP for VPN clients, our w2k3 server does the DHCP for the rest of the systems so DHCP is actually off in the router.

Anyone know of a way to adjust the DHCP paremeters for the VPN clients on the RV220W?

ok, I cant find a way to do DHCP pass thru,
