  • From PPTP to L2TP/IPsec using RRAS - How?

    Hi folks,

    I need a bit of help from all of the experts on here. I need to get a VPN setup for a teleworker that is going to be working from home. Managed to get so far but now a bit stuck.

    Here's the setup:
    Windows 2003 server running RRAS in our office, Draytek 2800 router. RRAS is setup and configured for PPTP access using port forwarding 1723 on the router to the server. This works fine and it is pretty stable.

    I am trying to upgrade the VPN to L2TP/Ipsec in order to improve security. The teleworker is trying to access my network using a 3g modem from Switzerland and it looks like it is blocked. The provider says they support IPSEC (Does this sound about right? Any thoughts?). The idea is that i upgrade the VPN to ipsec.

    How do i go about doing this? Is there something i can do in the RRAS just to simply switch it?

    I have looked on the net and I'm struggling to find any detailed instructions. I know i need to install some kind of certificate services and get a certificate for the server. I then need to setup the port forwarding rules on the router. The stuff I have read then says then to try and connect and as windows xp will try Ipesec as the first protocol it should connect.

    I also have a windows 2008 server in the office i could use for this. Is there any advantage in using this for the VPN over 2003?

    Anyone help out with any instructions or tips? Am i going along the correct lines?

    Thanks in advance.

      Unfortunately i'm after setting it up so it uses a pass phrase as it is supposedly meant to be a bit easier!!! (do not believe them though!)
