SSTP VPN to server from Windows 2003 Server

we have a server setup on Amazon and can connect to it from our Win 7 desktops using the SSTP VPN connection, but I wish to connect our Server 2003 box to it to perform a file sync of some directories.

I could do this over FTP, but the file comparison of size/date isn't very reliable and it will just try to transfer EVERYTHING most of the time.

If I could connect via the VPN, I could use the FreeFileSync program to compare and then sync...   but it seems that Server 2003 doesn't have SSTP connection capabilities.

Is there any way around this?

You can set up a PPTP VPN to a 2003 server quite easily, however PPTP is not as secure as SSTP.  Should that be an option and you would like more information, please advise.

You can also use a 3rd party VPN service such as LogMeIn's Hamachi

Hamachi does not require any port forwarding.

From not To a 2003 server.  
The connection is from 2003 to 2012 R2 (which is an amazon server and will only allow sstp vpn connections).
