    I am trying to setup VPN access on a new Win 7 computer but cannot get it to work. The XP machine I have works flawlessly but whenever I try to access on the Win 7 machine it says the machine on the other end is not responding. I set everything to match the settings on the XP computer but still no love. Does anyone have any thoughts on what the issue might be?

    You might want to try running the VPN client in compatibility mode as XP SP3. Or whatever versions the XP machines are. You can do that via the VPN client's desktop icon under "Properties".

    I just watch Netflix directly by logging into the website; DVD quality playback.

    So you are obviously not in US, which VPN did you buy?
