windows server 2012 with vpn issue

Hi please help,

I recently set up business Server 2012. It used the DHCP of the router for IP and all was well. Internal users got the correct credentials and remote users could connect via vpn.

however, i recently decided to install dhcp not the sever (thought it was best practice) but could not get it configured ie. when I turned off the router dhcp, clients for some reason did not pick up the new settings as per server. So I rolled back and uninstalled the DHCP role and re enabled the dhcp on the router.

an my issue, since doing this, all remote users (and also internal users) shoe try to vpn in get up to adding machine to network then the 720 error.

any thoughts? I'm lost!

check in RRAS (routing & remote access) where the VPN is configured. It will have automatically picked up the DHCP on the server when it was installed but probably hasn't been reconfigured since DHCP was removed.
