Below is the instruction to setup PPTP vpn on the C3150.


Please show us a screenshot of the status page and VPN settings page. 


Meanwhile, in order to access the storaged device remotely, except VPN, you can enable the port forwarding feature to do that as well.


May it help and have a nice day.
