VPN best practices - Windows 2008 R2

My scenario:

Windows 2008 R2 Standard
1 domain
Exchange 2010 SP2 (around 10 users)
1 NIC enabled
1 public IP
Draytek 2820 (ports open 80 - 443 - 25 - 143 - 995) with VPN enable

I would like to enable VPN from server side instead of router in order to allow users to access networks shares and have a seamless authentication process.

I would appreciate any advise and tutorial on how to achieve this from 2008 R2 box.
Also, do I need to use another public IP and NIC to minimize network traffic?

Do not use PPTP as it seems easy to crack
