Ys tx_it_guy I need configuration of server 2003 aswell. Please tell me what should wat would be the vpn. would it be L2tp/IP Sec, pptp ? Can u tell me when should I configure l2tp/ipsec and pptp? in my case wat should i configure?
You should be using l2tp/ipsec.

Though pptp can be very secure if configured correctly and a complex password is used
with MSCAPv2, l2tp is more secure for a number of reasons. The actual authentication
exchange is not encrypted [other than that provided by the protocol itself] in pptp
while it is in l2tp. L2tp uses a more robust encryption method and probably one of
the biggest advantages is it requires certificate machine authentication in addition
to user authentication while pptp only requires user authentication for initial
connection. That means if a hacker knows the name/password for a vpn user it is no
good to them on a computer without a trusted certificate for machine authentication.
While either can be configured on Windows computers [W9X requires client upgrade],
pptp is generally easier to set up than l2tp as is will not work through NAT routers
and requires a Certificate Authority to issue machine certificates [easy enough to do
though]. There is a NAT-T update that is supposed to work through NAT routers.
