Configuring a Server to allow external clients to dial-in and establish a VPN connection

Last Modified: 2010-04-11
Hi all,

I have a Windows 2000 Server with broadband internet access. I want to be able to connect to the server from home and browse the network resources as if I was on the Servers LAN.

I have tried to set this up before using Routing and Remote access and PPTP protocol but as I'm a novice with VPN It didn't work properly. So I've come here to ask the experts :)

The server has an ISP assigned static IP address (obtained by our ADSL router)

The server has a static internal LAN IP address of

The server is a domain controller running DNS and DHCP.

Any solutions or links to good tutorials would be appreciated, and points will be split and awarded fairly and accordingly :)
