Network Card: only 1

Object: Set up VPN

Guide: http://blog.thesysadmins.co.uk/server-2008-r2-pptp-vpn-with-1-nic.html

Problem: How come I can only see VPN and Dial up options in the Wizard, and Not be able to choose Custom Config and others?

The reason you don't see the same options as in the guide, is because the guide applies to Windows Server 2008 R2, while you use Windows Server 2008 with SP2. They are 2 distinct operating systems.

For information on setting up VPN on Windows Server 2008, check out the deployment guides at TechNet

awesome - Thanks. –  starchx Mar 19 '12 at 6:37
This is a non-answer. You never explained why; you merely pointed out the obvious version differences. For what it's worth, I have a 64-bit Windows Server 2008 R2 box that has the same issue as the OP. Your answer is not only inaccurate, it's disingenuous and misleading. –  diz Jul 14 at 19:27
@diz If you have any relevant information that surpasses my non-answer in ingenuity, please feel free to exercise the limited democratic power the "Add Another Answer" button possesses, and shame my misleading answer by way of a better one. –  Mathias R. Jessen Jul 14 at 21:43
