Hi guys,

I have a Server 2012 running that's configured for PPTP remote access. Now it seems that one domain group has access to the VPN. I cant see to find anything in NPS where this is defined? How do i track this down?

This is defined in AD users and groups--this may be what you are looking for http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc995159.aspx

Right now, they are set to Allow Access on the Dial-In tab in AD.

I tested with my account with Allow Access too, but it wouldnt let me authenticate until i was a member of that AD group.

You need to be a member of the group that allows remote access

Look in AD Users and Computers--then the built-in group and then Remote Desktop Users.
