XP Pro VPN Server Client connects/resolves cannot ping

By jadams ·
I have an XP Pro machine that will be serving as a temporary VPN Server.

I created the vpn incoming connection, checked the "allow callers to access my local network" box, have turned off windows firewall, have enabled the IPEnableRouter key or I forget what it was. I have forwarded ports on the router, and there is no pptp or vpn passthru options in there, and there are no in/outbound firewall restrictions. VPN is set to handout IP addresses between 192.168.86.10/192.168.86.12

XP VPN SERVER LOCAL CONNECTION: 192.168.86.3
XP VPN SERVER VPN Connection: 192.168.86.10
XP CLIENT VPN CONNECTION: 192.168.86.11
XP CLIENT LOCAL CONNECTION: 192.168.1.13

You can see above the networks are different subnets.

Here is the problem. The client connects fine, and can ping 192.168.86.10 (VPN Server VPN connection) and the VPN Server can ping 192.168.86.11 (CLIENT VPN Connection).

However the client cannot access the local address of the server 192.168.86.3 or any other servers on the network.

It CAN however, resolve hosts, say if I ping 'webserver' from the client, you can see
pinging 'webserver' 192.168.86.203, which is its correct address.

It seems to me like there is something on the XP Server blocking the connection.

Help would be very much appreciated.
