help with vpn connection in xp

Specs: Windows XP
I'm trying to set up VPN connection in my company. I made one xp professional sp3 as a vpn server and it's local ip is 192.168.1.XX.
I connected to the vpn server from a computer in the same network and now it shows "one client connected".

What I wonder is it's ip now is 192.168.1.XX which is local. How I can access this from any other location or any other network?

I guess I can do it with port forwarding in router. I will forward the local ip to the public static ip. is it correct?
Even if I do, how can I access files after I connect via VPN?
Now it shows one client connected but I don't know how to access files?

WIndows Xp cnt be a VPN Server. For VPN Server you need to have Windows server 2003 or 2008 and then try the same, Hope it will work out!!

You can use remote desktop instead.
