    Only if you use DFS Namespaces with Previous Versions/End User recovery for Windows 7 clients (nothing needed at the server end).

    2. Setup new Virtual Machine dedicated to VPN/DirectAccess
    3. Port forward one of your public IP address (easier said than done if you are using a LEA connection) to the IP address of the network adapter on the server
    4. Enable the Routing and Remote Access role on your server
    5. Import the SSL certificate to the server
    6. Follow through the steps on the 'setup remote access wizard'
    7. Setup the software client on your users PCs and show them how awesome it is.

    Took me a good half day to work it out the first time but I've setup so many now that its a 10 minute job - the energy expended making it work will be well worth it!
    that's for the SSTP VPN do you have any how to guides or more in-depth install guides? or know where some are?
