    I'm creatnig a VPN server and trying to log into it from my comp,
    and it won't pass Verifying.
    i've turned the internal modem's firewall off.

    why does it happen ? its worknig for 3 of my friends without problems.

    also, i can't get external pings for some reason [ppl can't ping me, but i can myself]

    Are you sure you have "all" firewalls configured properly or disabled? The reason I am asking because you have described common symtoms of a firewall issue e.g. You can ping behind the network but no one can ping you from outside. Something has to be blocking them. What modem/router combo are you using I may be able to help. I do this all day long for SBC customers....

    ok, I've solved all the problems, exept how to define the
    subnetmask to someone that connects to my VPN, and why
    can't more than 1 be connected at the same time

    The subnet mask is normally 255.255.255.0. That means "all computer with the same first three numbers". 255 means "same as me" and 0 means "any number". Just compare the two IP:s to determine the appropriate netmask.
