VPN/PPTP over Ethernet?

I would like to setup the following:

NT4 with PPTP Dialup to Internet on one side. Second side is also NT4 (server) connected to ethernet. In this ethernet also a router is integrated, using a leased line for permanent connection to internet.

As far as I understand this needs PPTP binding to the ethernet NIC on server side, but I found only examples using RAS with modem.

Someone has already managed this? Helpful hints are welcome.

Thanks,
Triggy.

It is independant of any particular adapter. You configure it under RAS because, conceptually, it is a remote connection to the machine. But it is not dependant on a certain adapter because it piggybacks tcp/ip. You do give the users permission to 'dial in remotely' and configure PPTP in RAS, but it doesn't have anything to do with a dialup adapter. Once you install PPTP, you then have a 'VPN adapter' in RAS. It wouldn't matter if you have a modem or not. If you are only on an ethernet conection, you would install PPTP first, which gives you the VPN adapter entries, then install RAS. You'll then only have the VPN adapters as your RAS adapters.

When setting up TCP/IP protocol for the ethernet NIC, there's a checkbox to enable PPTP filtering, which locks the NIC for PPTP/VPN exclousivly. Does that mean, if I want to access the net from outside via PPTP, I have to install a second NIC and keep on using the first NIC for the Intranet as usual?

BTW, which TCP ports should be routied via the external router for PPTP?
