    Go to your Computer panel in Windows, and select Network and Internet. Open the Network and Sharing Center tab, and check the network settings. View your network connections to other computers and networks, and click on Change Adapter Settings. View the list of all network connections on your computer before changing your settings.

  2. Allow access

    Open the menu, and open the New Incoming Connection tab. This starts a wizard, and the primary thing is deciding the person you want to give access. Instruct the computer on how other people can connect to the computer through the Internet. Allow access to different computers, such as Macs and UNIX servers, by clicking on Allow Access. Find out the IP of your computer by typing "cmd" in the Run box and then "ipconfig;" into the DOS window.

  3. Add port forwarding to your router

    Add port forwarding to your router by typing your IP address into your browser. Find your router console by creating port forwarding for the VPN port used to connect. Point the port to the IP address of your computer, and then reboot the router after saving the port forwarding. Rebooting activates the settings and sets a working VPN.
