HI does someone have a simple guide or steps on how to create a simple RAS PPTP server on a Windows 2003 server.  The server is on a domain test lab its a member server.  The lab has 2 DC's with DHCP and DNS running.  Obviously I would like the PPTP RAS to assign DHCP addresses to connections from the DHCP pool.

Any advice would be very much appreciated.

Very welcome. Thank you tickleonthetum.
One note I forgot to mention; VPN's require that the local subnet at the VPN server and VPN client be different. Therefore if you have a common subnet at the office such as 192.168.0.x , and if you have the option change it to something less common as mobile users will sometimes encounter the same subnet in hotels and such and have conflicts.

Cheers !
