    Hi everybody
    First let me explain my server
    I have a dedicated web server with os windows server 2003 standard r2,
    server hast xeon dual core and 2 gb ram

    this is our production server and we have 5 websites online on thie server
    these web sites are sensitive and should be online always, the server is in
    another country so the only access to that is RDP that I use that with full
    admin access.

    Fore some reason I have to use my server internet services at my home , I
    mean I want create a VPN/NAT services on the server and connect with vpn to
    my server and using NAT to use server internet connection instead my ISP
    internet connection.

    But the problem is that because I'm using windows firewall to secure my
    server , when I want to config Routing and Remote Access , it says you habe
    to disabe windows firewall services , if I disable that windows is under
    security risk , but I know that VPN/NAT have a firewall like windows firewall
    , but I scare about that I scare of blocking my self , and even I can't
    access RDP .

    So please let me know how can I config this server as VPN/NAT server without
    blocking myself and also configuring firewall for my server and more
    important that everything I don't want anything happend to web server , it
    should remain as a web server also .

    Thanks a lot
