How to implement + setup + install VPN with Netgear FSV318 VPN Firewall or Server ?

I have the task of implementing a VPN for a small business environment. I've never been in the position of implementing just managing VPNs.

I am looking for a step by step instructions to set this up and hopefully someone can help.

I have a FVS318 VPN Firewall behind a T1. My predecessor left running an ISA Server which I ended up replacing with the Firewall which works a lot better for me (primarily because it's less components to manage). The server had on it routing and remote access which handled the VPN and I'm opened minded to any solutions that would include either setting up VPN on the firewall itself or forwarding a port to the VPN routing and remote access server.

To give you an idea of how much I know at this point:

If I set this up on the server, Do I need two NIC cards on that server or can I setup VPN with a server with just one NIC card?

If I set this up on the firewall, Must I use the client Software or can my users just configure a regular pptp connection ->new VPN connection under network connections in Windows?

Thanks in advance!

You removed ISA from an SBS installation? As you have taken on the role, you obviously must also know that the ISA version shipped with SBS is 'specifically' written to operate with SBS and the creation of all the services such as rww, OWA, vpn, sharepoint, sql etc are all automated?

So what are you now using for the proxy/application hateway service or have you not replaced that functionality on your network?

Oh well, it's your network.

So what aspect are you skling about regards VPN? What results did you get aget the ceicw was run?
Are you setting up pptpor ipsec?  ie what sort of vpn are you trying to esatblish?

The ISA server was built on an old Compaq Machine that I bet is about 10- 15 years old. IT IS NOT A SMALL BUSINESS SERVER, MORE LIKE A SLOW BUSINESS SERVER. I replaced it because I literally had no choice as all the traffic going through that machine was affected. So I plainly removed the ISA box from production and not using it at all at the moment.

In its place I have running the FSV318 Firewall I mentioned. I've massaged OWA back into the mix of things so that's all set. However, yes I am looking to get my users back onto using a PPTP VPN connection.
