    Need help setting up a VPN server

    Hi all

    I just setup a computer with windows 2003 server ent. R2 and i want it to be
    running as a VPN server. It has two network cards, one which is connected to
    the internal network and the other one is connected to a wireless router
    (with cable) which the latter then connects to an ADSL modem for Internet
    connectviity. My question is how can I enable Routing and Remote access on
    this machine and make the server act as a VPN server (giving access to
    internal resources). I am sure this involves some port forwarding from modem
    to router and also a way to translate the IP address to an Internet host
    name (using for example)

    Thanks a lot for your help!

    This is quite off topic... but you would have to forward port 1723 (for PPTP
    VPNs) on your router, and then set up your RRAS.

    Good luck.
