Do I need to create any certificates on this 2003 Server to enable VPN access?

I'm going through my checkist and it seems I've got everyting set up correctly, including PPTP pass-through and port-forwarding on the router, and I've set up dozens of VPN's t Windows Servers, but only on SBS and not on plain Server 2003. Anyone? Thanks.

Hi WineGeek,

no need to create any certs with 2003 that i am aware of.....


You would only require certicates if you were running L2TP vpns.  As PPTP is legacy vpn software for vpns then there is no need for a CA.  Just ensure that you set the MPPE encyption to the highest level
