I just installed a Server at my house to give myself some hands on practice. It's currently setup as a File Server, but i'd like it to have VPN capabilities. I've created the Remote Access/VPN Service and setup a pool of static IPs for VPN clients. However I still can't connect to the VPN from my office at work. What else do i need to enable to make this happen? Is their port forwarding I should do? Do I need to enable a DHCP service on the server? I appreciate any help I can get, thank you.
