I have a dedicated server set up at godaddy. I'm developing an app and need this server to serve  as a VPN server. My problem is I need to set up some type of virtual network that I can use to assign IPs to the client machines that access the VPN server. I can't figure out how to get this done. Any help?

Hello,

what you are searching for is called "routing and ras". You can install it using software in the control panel.
For using it with VPN you must have 2 network cards to seperate WAN and LAN. So you need an second network card which is connected to somehing.
Without a second card you can't install it.

I have Routing and Remote Access installed. I only have 1 Nic. I've installed a VPN server before but this was in an actual environment where I had all the LAN IPs I needed at my disposal. I'm just trying to figure out how to create this "virtual" local network so I can get IPs to assign to the clients.

woops, i should've refreshed my page :P

you would also have to install dhcp services and configure the remote users to pickup and ip address from the dhcp server configured. You can do this from the RRAS console. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/160699

Thank javiersantana! I'll check this out later when I have time to jump on the server.

One other quick question: I've been logging into this server via RDP. When I start RAS I get booted off.

I created a task that runs every 5 minutes that shuts RAS down so I can log back in and troubleshoot.

I know I've missed something simple, because I've done something similar like this before. Any ideas?

Client IP's can be assigned through the VPN static Address Pool, using DC, as per my web site outline:
