Number of Connections
The number of dial-up modem connections is dependent on the number of modems that are installed on the server. If you have only one modem installed on the server, you can only have one modem connection at a time.

The number of dial-up VPN connections is dependent on the number of simultaneous users that you want to allow. By default, when you run the procedure described in this article, you allow five connections. To allow more connections: 1. Click Start, click Programs, click Administrative Tools, and then click Routing and Remote Access.
2. Right-click Ports, and then click Properties. If you do not see this listing, click on the plus sign (+) next to the server icon to expand the sub tree for your server.
3. In the Ports properties, click WAN Miniport (PPTP), and then click Configure.
4. In the Maximum ports box, type the number of VPN connections that you want to allow.
5. Click OK, click OK, and then close Routing and Remote Access.
