VPN on sbs 2008

I have a SBS 2008. The operating system had to be totally re-installed due to some hardware failure. I  previously had The VPN working. I have not changed anything on the router so it is still set up. Can someone please direct how to set up the VPN part on the server ? I did not set it up before so I'm lost as my cousin had done that for me and I cain't get in touch with him right now. Again I didn't change anything  with the domain settings and I have not changed anything with the Router so I'm thinking all I need to do is set it up again on the server to allow the access. Having never done this I'm cautious and wanting to learn. Any help is much appreciated !

Yes, this does help some. I get connected to the VPN now. However it says the VPN is connected but it says I have no network access and also my internet says I have no internet access. I have to disconnect the VPN then disable and reenable my network adapter to get internet access again, Suggestions what I need to do now ?

I am getting a (169.) address which I know is generic instead of a  ( 10.10.10.x) ip address   and even though I am connected to the VPN, it says I have no network access. Where do I fix this ?
