VPN Setup - "Changes to router-

    I have the green arrow on under the "routing and remote access". I really
    don't remember installing the VPN server but maybbe it automatically does
    when I add a user that will use VPN, as I added under the user settings. The
    directions state that if the arrow is there then its a good idea to
    reconfigure it. My question is this, if I decide to reconfigure, will this
    mess up my ext and int nics so my clients will lose connectivity? Or is this
    seperate from the Int and Ext nic settings?

    If I make a change in these setting it says " you made changes to the router
    that will require the router to be restarted". Right now every wireless and
    attached system is working very well, I just don;t want to screw anything up.

    Your input is very much appreciated

  2. Hi,

    Nice working with you here.

    Technically speaking, we can manually configure RRAS VPN features just like we configure a Windows Server 2003 VPN Server.

    However, if you want to configure the SBS 2003 server as the VPN server, we recommend you to run the Remote Access Wizard. This will not
    affect any existing users. To do so:

    1. Open Server Management.
    2. Click Internet and E-mail.
    3. Click Configure Remote Access in the right pane.
    4. Choose Enable remote access and VPN access.
    5. Choose a client address assignment.
    6. Key in your servername (Public IP address or public domain name).
    7. Click Finish.

    If you want to configure the router to pass through the VPN connections, there're two scenarios:

    1. If it is a UPNP router, CEICW should be able to configure it to allow the PPTP traffic.
    2. If it does not support UPNP, we have to manually configure the router to allow TCP port 1723 and GRE protocol 47.

    More Information:
    To manually configure VPN settings, you can refer to the following page:
    Configuring a VPN Remote Access Server

    Any questions, let's get in touch.
