Remote anywhere vpn troubleshooting - Windows Server Essentials

I have a Server 2012 R2 Essentials server that has remote anywhere vpn setup but after a SSL cert renewal, the VPN portion is no longer working.  In the dashboard, it says I need to run Repair but after running Repair, it doesn't fix it.

Users can connect to the VPN but after connecting, they cannot reach the server.  I cannot ping the server either and the users do not have Internet after connecting to the VPN.  They are using the remote gateway, DHCP and DNS is from DHCP as well.

Are there any "Advanced" settings on the server or is the Wizard the only place to configure this?

Also before I start changing settings is there a way to backup the current ones so I don't have to do it manually?
