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?
