    I am very shure it is of the VPN configuration since :

    PPP adapter VPN Connection Consolight:

    Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
    IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . :
    Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . :
    Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :

    Subnet Mask it is wrong , and the Gateway .

    How can i change these setings of PPTP VPN the subnetmask and the gateway ?

    I am totally confused at this stage and have no idea how you've got to where you are. Really you should not be using a beta product if you don't know what you are doing and cannot troubleshoot.

    The PPTP server should be configured with a local and remote IP range (although it is not necessary). By default it is in the same range as your LAN. You've worked out how to change this and extend your LAN (as you now have a /23 subnet on your LAN) yet you don't know how to move your LAN. I find this odd.

    How many users are you expecting?

    In 6.x, to change the LAN subnet, you go to Webconfig > Network > IP Settings, then for your LAN NIC click edit and change the LAN IP. Then go to Webconfig > Network > DHCP Server and make sure the settings here are consistent with your LAN settings. It is probably better to do this in reverse the order as, when you change your LAN NIC IP, you may lose access to your server unless you manually assign your client an IP address.

    When you set up your DHCP server, its IP range must at least exclude your LAN NIC IP and ideally exclude a few more IP addresses to allow you to set up more static IP's on you LAN, for example for network printers.
