    I finally got the VPN tunnel to work on my windows machine. It successfully creates a tunnel out port 8080. If I open a cmd window I can successfully ping a machine at home.

    For MSN, I tried changing the connection to to use a proxy service at 127.0.0.1 and port 8080. Doesn't work.

    Now that's it's working, how do I use this connection for websurfing, msn'in, or IRC?

    go in vpn thread and look configuration posts. i think that your route is wrong on your vpnclient (laptop or some pc). look for the push option cearfully. if your OS on vpn client is windows open cmd end make a test with command : tracert xxxxxx.com, then start openvpn client end do this again tracert xxxxx.com or some address and you will see that your connection to internet (for browse the net,icq,msn...) not pass throught tunnel :
    your vpnclient (laptop)-->vpn server(your router at home)-->Internet
    i hope my post was useful for you :)

    You do know that 127.0.0.1 points to the computer you are on. Its a loopback address.

    Are you trying to use your home internet access from work for unrestricted access?
