I had to move my server to a temporary location where port 47 (GRE) is being blocked by the ISP. They have no way to open it. What other option do I have besides VPN?

Depends a bit on what your goals are.  To connect directly to the server, can they open a port for RDP... this is "usually" 3389 but can be changed.  I prefer RWA, but that requires 443.

let us know what you want to do, and we may be of more help.

I have a bunch of shared drives which I need access to from my workstation. VPN is the only way I can think of directly accessing my mapped drives. Unless I can do this somehow using HTTP/HTTPS.

Hello,

In SBS 2011 you are able to access shares via the Remote Web Access as suggested by Larry.

No answer was given by any expert. Did research and configured SSTP as VPN.
