That is true, and that is something I can do. I have done many many things with the VMs before anyone even thought about doing it, because I used Qubes for Development purposes. So routing isn't too hard for it. If I have any isues with the Routing sides of it I'll be sure to ask. > > > > I also want to have one where everything that is going to happen on the > > remote network is pushed through the VPN, and everything else remains using > > the local connection. > > > > So there are 2 ways I'm looking at having it work. > > > > But at first, I just want a standard PPTP connection. > > There are plenty of guides out there.

Exactly, and as a router it should connect a VPN. I used to have it able to do it. So that's why I don't understand why it isn't working. Since I had it able to do it once before, ages ago, and nothing has changed since then, and now it isn't working. So it's odd. Thus I figured maybe something has changed.
