    Opps should read "now what?"

    I created a VPn on my s4 to my home windows 7 PC, it's connected but now what? I can't see any files I thought I shared them, I don't' even know where I would go to see my files.

    My goal is to stream my mp3's to my phone or backup photos from phone to PC.

    Anyone have experience with this?

    Why are you using a VPN? Afraid someone might b eavesdropping on your wifi?

    Just plug the phone into the computer and transfer the files.

    ByES file explorer lets me

    1- access (read/write) a shared folder on my Windows 7 pc. This is done on the lan screen of es file explorer. Yes I can stream audio and video filesfrom my pc on my phone (without ever copying the file to the phone)

    2-access my phone files from my pc using the remote manager screen of es to set up a server.

    The first is handier. If I'm on my phone and want to transfer files to pc, don't even need to be at my pc (as long as in home wifi router range). If I'm on my pc and want to make files available to phone, just copy them to the shared folder and pick them up when I'm on my phone later. I have sub folders "to phone" and "to pc" in my shared folder to keep track of what I've put in there...waiting to be grabbed.
