I have a question on setting up a vpn on a Network that is domain based (Windows 2003 Server).  Does the router act as a remote sccess server or do i need to add that role to the Server?  If  anyone else has set up a vpn on this type of router any tips would be apprecieted.

    You need to configure RRAS on windows 2003, then allow IPSEC or PPTP or L2TP to pass through your router.

    So on the windows XP pro machine that I am using to connect to the VPN from home.. The host name or IP address of destination would be the router's Public IP address?

    Thats why you have to setup your firewall/router to send that info to your 2003 heap.
