I have been attempting to set up a VPN connection on a 2003 SBS server.  The server is plugged into a router supplied by BTOpenworld which is plugged into the broadband connection.
I have installed the VPN server thru the wizard.  Following the instructions at http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;323441 
...Click the server icon that matches the local server name in the left pane of the console. If the icon has a red circle in the lower-left corner, the Routing and Remote Access service has not been turned on. If the icon has a green arrow pointing up in the lower-left corner, the Routing and Remote Access service has been turned on. If the Routing and Remote Access service was previously turn on, you may want to reconfigure the server. To reconfigure the server:
Right-click the server object, and then click Disable Routing and Remote Access. Click Yes to continue when you are prompted with an informational message.
Right-click the server icon, and then click Configure and Enable Routing and Remote Access to start the Routing and Remote Access Server Setup Wizard. Click Next to continue.
Click Remote access (dial-up or VPN) to turn on remote computers to dial in or connect to this network through the Internet. Click Next to continue.

At this point this wizard cuts out and tells me I only have 1 network adapter so will have to configure manually.

So, as I'm not sure how to do this I have gone back to the set-up wiz and asked it to install VPN service.
The service appears to be running but when a user tries to access it they get Error 800 unable to establish the VPN connection.  The VPN server may be unreachable or security parameters may not be configured properly for this connection.

I have got the XP firewall off on the client computer

any help much appreciated
