Using the Routing and remote access feature on Server 2008 for VPN.

I'm just wondering is there a way to change the default ports for VPN (Ports 1743 and 47) to something else? Thank you.

Still haven't fully understood the nature of how everything works but PPTP used for PPTP control connection and the other for PPTP Data Tunneling.

Control server uses port 1723 for control and 47 for data tunneling, I'd like to change these default to something else.

As there are two VPN servers, I can't do port forwarding for both as there's two servers with the same ports. I'll need to somehow change the default values or the clients can use a different port.

Is there a work around this? Thank you.

Seems like there's no option to make the changes to different ports. I'll have to look at alternatives using multiple gateways or use OpenVPN.

Doesn't resolve issues. From what I'd read, there no way to change these ports, so an alternative solution will be required.
