Hi I need to setup a vpn server ith the following please let me know as in how i can accomplish this.

available to me are the following

windows 2008 pc with latest hardware (10.0.20.1)
broadband router with a static IP (115.223.115.123) address which forwards all traffic (all ports) to the server 10.0.20.1

Dude,

Don't use Windows for your VPN connection. Use Cisco, Checkpoint, Palo Alto.
