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.

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
