comment Configuring VPN on Windows Server 2008 with no DHCP
I think the issue is that the DHCP server is not installed correctly. I have updated my original post with the output from ipconfig /all p.s. Your help is really appreciated!

I have added some screenshots as I'm a bit lost. DHCP is not in the same IP range as the fixed IP the web site works off if that makes sense.

comment Configuring VPN on Windows Server 2008 with no DHCP
I have setup DHCP on the server 192.168.1.2 - 192.168.1.50. When I try to connect via client I get a message in the server's event viewer: Unable to contact a DHCP server. The Automatic Private IP Address 169.254.32.58 will be assigned to dial-in clients. Clients may be unable to access resources on the network.

@mrdenny Do you think I could install DHCP at this stage without taking down the site? Would this make my VPN installation a little easier? I appreciate that without seeing the server it's hard for you to say, but based on the information I originally posted.

@mrdenny where can I do this? I presume it's somewhere under Server Manager and Routing and Remote Access ?

I have added a static IP address pool 10.9.8.7 to 10.9.8.9 under the IPV4 Address Pool section in Routing and Remote Access but my VPN connection still comes up with an error connecting: Error 800: The remote connection was not made because the attempted VPN tunnel fails. The VPN server might be unreachable. ...

comment Configuring VPN on Windows Server 2008 with no DHCP
I have finished the latest round of development and have now removed remote SQL access. What would be an example of a static IP address that I could use? The default gateway is 4x.2x.13x.1 and my site's ip is 4x.2x.13x.9x. Could I create a static IP e.g. 4x.2x.13x.2 ?
