SBS 2011 VPN Alternative

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.

I ended up use SSTP which works perfectly fine.

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