    setup VPN access on 2008R2

    Hi Everyone

    Has anyone setup a remote access server for VPN on Server 2008R2? It appears to be different from 2003R2 where you just install Routing and Remote Access.

    All the schools servers are now 2008R2 and all windows 7 clients.

    Many Thanks

    Just out of interest, did the above guide work ok. I have found different variations on the procedure and need to pick one that is actually being used.

    Cheers

    Should do, I usually just use ISA/TMG which makes it a couple of button clicks.

    Don't mean to be daft but you can setup a VPN over SSL on TMG?

    I used adito for VPN and files access, easy to install and easy to use, especially for teachers

    I setup a 2008 r2 vpn server but also setup along side it NAP so it does the health validating to ensure clients have a Firewall, Antivirus and upto date computer before they can get full access. I also have it certificate driven so only people who have the root certificate can connect. I did look into ssl VPNS but I wanted to find connecting to a VPN as easy as possible.

    From the user side DirectAccess is the simplest, they are just automagicly and transparently connected the whole time in the background. It is apparently a nightmare to setup though and you need two sequential external ips.
