Hi Tom,

1 Open the Windows 2008 Server Manager or Initial Configuration Tasks.

2 Click the Add Roles

3. Skip the Before You Begin page.

4. In Server Roles, check Network Policy and Access Services. Click Next.

5. Read the information on the Network Policy and Access Services page. Click Next.

6. On the Select Role Services page, check the Routing and Remote Access Services and make sure the Remote Access Service and Routing are checked. Click Next.

7. Click Install on the Confirm Installation Selections page.

8. Click Close on the Installation Results page.

9. To configure RRAS, open the Server Manager, expand the Roles node in the left pane of the console. Expand the Network Policy and Access Services node and click on the Routing and Remote Access node. Or you can go to Administrative Tools>Routing and Remote Access. Right click on the Routing and Remote Access node and click Configure and Enable Routing and Remote Access

10. If you have just one NIC, Select Custom configuration.

11. After click Next, select VPN access.

12. Follow the instruction to finish the configuration

for configuring your firewall (if you have any) use this guide :

this guide is for using one adapter, can you use 2? it will be better and then in step 10 you select 2 adapters and follow the wizard accordingly

Cheers,
