SBS 2011 on ESXi 5.5 - VPN PPTP not working

HI,

I have an ESXi 5.5. that has a vmachine with SBS 2011 that serves as:

- DNS Server
- File Server
- DHCP Server
- FTP Server

and I configured VPN as well. The problem is that VPN does not seem to work although I know the configuration is correct ( I have done several of these SBS implementations but first on an ESXi)

I found a possible solution where it states that in ESXi 5.5, it needs to have a VMXNET 3 network in order to have VPN working properly. Problem is that I have E100 configured.

Here are the links where I got the solution:

QUESTION IS: WILL REMOVING THE E100 AND ADDING THE VMXNET affect my configuration? WHAT IS THE BEST AND SAFEST ROUTE TO CHANGE THE VM NETWORK DRIVER?

THanks!

Thanks everyone for the responses. I was able to solve the issue by simply upgrading ESX 5.5 to the newest patch and it was fixed without the need to change ethernet cards.
