Hi,
 
 I have a VMWare virtual machine running Windows Server 2008 with public static ip address assigned.
 I am looking for a VPN software that I can install on this VM so that Apple iPhone or iPad users can connect to this server to surf the internet.
 Again the purpose is to allow iPhone or iPad users to establish secure VPN connection ONLY to surf the internet, nothing else. This VM/W2008 Server has no files to share and it is NOT connected to any other computer or network. It is completely standalone computer in VMWare box.

Thanks.

Routing and Remote Access and included as a feature/role with Windows 2008 Server provides this function, with no additional software required.

Just don't use PPTP because this has been removed from latest version of IOS 10.0.

According to the article, it says "Enable forwarding for TCP Port 1723 (PPTP) to your 2008 R2 Server".
This is PPTP and iPhone can't connect to PPTP VPN anymore.

You will need to use a different protocol! I did mentioned PPTP has been removed from IOS 10.0.
