Windows Server 2003 VPN Set Up With Asus Router and Firewall/VPN

I am trying to set up a workplace VPN using Windows Server 2003.  I have setup the Asus Router/Firewall/VPN (I think) appropriately, looking at the WAN static IP Address.  When I set up VPN on Win 7 Client, it is not making connection to server (Time out)

1. Do I need to set up RRAS on Server 2003?
2. Does the client Win 7 need to be assigned to the domain, or remain in workgroup.
3. Something else?


Thank you in advance for any help.

Hi

How does the Asus appliance authenticate? Through the domain controller?
Then I would say you would need IAS with Radius support. Read here on howto.
And yes, this implies someone is member of the domain.

If you want to keep it simple, you could go for PPTP, hence you need to enable RRAS.
The client does not have to be a member of the domain, but it will make it easier to authenticate network shares etc.

Patricksr1972...I followed step by step and configured IAS as article outlined, still no luck...any ideas

Kimputer...I enabled RRAS and have been able to make a VPN connection...I will be trying to utilize network resources next...I did have client PC join domain.
