I have the following:
WIndows 2008 R2 That's also the DC with 6 NICs,  2 enabled and both wired to the VPN router
Netgear FVS 318 VPN enabled router Which allows 8 concurrent VPN connections.

The server has DNS, AD DC, File Services, Print and Document services. I have not set up IIS or RRAS on the server yet.

I have already explained to the small business owner that the ideal solution here is Windows Server 2011 SBS. He has already heavily invested into this server with 2008 R2 Standard which looks like it was designed to be a cluster server. He will not get the SBS solution. Barring the immense security risk here, the owner wants his DC VPN enabled through the router.

Can anyone explain how i can make this happen? I have done the following so far:

However this tutorial calls for a Server 2008 DC, a VPN server, and a Win 7 client.
All I have available is a Win 7 Pro network and one 2008 R2 DC.

RRAS is the solution however it is NOT recommended to install RRAS on a Domain Controller. However, if your client insists, follow these directions:

Install RRAS
