I have a dedicated windows server. I want to create a VPN to encrypt my traffic (browsing, IM, etc) as I browse on my laptop using public wifi networks.

What keywords should I be using to search Google? Are there any resources that help me do this? Most of the solutions are just to encrypt communication between the server to a machine. It does not act like an internet gateway, etc.

By default Windows VPN will use the default gateway provided by the RRAS server when connected to the VPN. So all your web browsing, IM'ing etc, will be encrypted.
