What kind of authentication are you trying to do?

RSA certificates are common way of achieving asymmetric keys for encrypted communication.  Haven't heard about RSA server ever.

If you are looking for a VPN software solution, try OpenSwan

http://www.openswan.org/

Yes, it would include RSA authentication

Did you configure Cisco (hardware) VPN or Linux software VPN?

Here is a description of how you setup a software VPN.

You would also need a VPN client for Windows

For example

Depending upon how your VPN server is implemented.  If it is on Linux, integration with Active Directory will be cumbersome.  Basically your windows clients would need VPN client software, to answer your question briefly.  How you want to authenticate it -- can be done many different ways.
