I have searched all over the Internet and used several walk-throughs on how to set up VPN on Windows Server 2008 R2. I still cannot seem to get this to work properly. Can someone please point me toward some documentation that shows exactly how to set up the VPN correctly? I need information on what roles/services need to be implemented on the server, the settings that need to be changed on my firewall, and the settings that need to be used when setting up the VPN connection on the clients. I know there are several different protocols that can be used, I am willing to use any one that is secure. If you can provide setup information for a particular protocol that would be great. I have researched all of the different protocols, so I do not need a detailed explanation of each protocol.
As I said before, I have tried several different walk-throughs online, but I cannot seem to get this to work. If there are any common problems that happen during the VPN installation that could be an issue, could you please advise?
I have a static IP on my modem. I can either use port forwarding or 1 to 1 NAT. I also have other static IP's available if necessary.
I know it is not always recommended, but I have this server running as a domain controller too. The server has 2 NIC's.
I am working on the server remotely through a VNC equivalent.
The modem/router/firewall (combo unit) is handing out DHCP, and I would like to keep it that way. I only need the VPN server to hand out 5 - 10 IP addresses. If those need to be set up static instead, that is fine.
Finally, thank you for your help. I know this might seem like an easy question, but I am pretty new to sys admin type stuff and am trying to educate myself.
