So you want the vpn to go through the firewall and terminate on the 2008 server?
Or might it be an idea to terminate the VPN on the firewall and use the 2008 server for the VPN authentication?

No, 2008 server as the remote-access vpn server with authentication to the local group.

Ok.

Firewall Ports to be opened when using IPSec:
IP protocol 51 – AH
IP protocol 50 – ESP
500/UDP – Internet Key Exchange
88/TCP – Kerberos (authentication used by IPSec)
88/UDP – Kerberos (authentication used by IPSec)

The following articles explain it nicely and in detail, have a look and see if that works for you:
