What are you hoping to accomplish? A VPN connection allows someone outside
your network to connect to your network. This would allow you to access
shared network resources over the Internet. Is this what you are trying to
do? This isn't possible to set up with Vista as the end point for the VPN
connection. You would need Windows Server or a VPN router. If this isn't
what you are trying to do please provide more details.
I think maybe you are trying to set up a Remote Desktop Connection to your
computer. If this is the case what version of Vista do you have? Only Vista
Business or Ultimate can be the server for a RDP connection.
