If so, does anything have to be set up a certain way for it to work? I have a functioning VPN but cannot connect to it using an iPad or iPhone.
Any help would be fantastic :)
Thanks

It depends on the type of VPN you have configured (windows supports multiple types PPTP SSTP), the ipad does have support for PPTP ( see the following guide http://jimiz.net/blog/2010/04/ipad-vpn-configure-and-setup/ ) but not to my knowledge SSTP(which is another method supported by windows server).

Thanks for the article. I ended up having to use a wifi connection for it to work. Otherwise it timed out.
