Hello, I am hoping to implement a new server machine for our business. I have a legacy application that will not work with Microsoft Server 2008-64-bit, but I plan to run a virtual version of Windows Server 2003 Standard, 32-bit as a terminal server, and run another virtual machine (windows xp pro)  until my legacy application is updated to run with the new o.s.  My question is, can I create VPN connectivity to my network, and give access to the terminal server so my outside users can access the application remotely?  I plan on running one physical machine, with 2-gigabit ethernet adapters.  I have a virtual network created and sharing one adapter for the virtual machines.  How would I go about setting up vpn connectivity on the Host O.S?  Would I need a 3rd ethernet adapter?  Would I have to make my host o.s. the DHCP server?  
I am running a full version of the Server 2008 standard, NOT just the core.  Currently, neither server o.s.  is setup as a domain controller, just workgroup servers.  We do not run exchange or have sbs server of any sort setup and don't plan to.
