  • Easiest Way/Tutorial to setup a VPN

    I am running a Windows Server 2003 server with Exchange 2003 SP2 on it. I am trying to setup a VPN so I can access outlook and my files on the server from a remote location. The builtin VPN server somehow didn't really let me access the internet once I set it up, only the intranet was accessible. Is there a good tutorial for how to set up a vpn? What other alternatives are there? Is SSH good enough for this purpose? Will SSH let me access the internet? I only have one ethernet card on my server machine. Is this the reason why I couldn't access the internet? Thanks for the answers.

    Does your router support VPNs?

    Re accessing internet, there is a setting to allow the client to use their current default gateway for non LAN traffic:
    "default gateway on remote network" somewhere in the TCP/IP settings for the VPN connection

        I've not used Exchange, but wouldn't IMAP be a better option? VPN seems over the top for mail access.

          If its just for email (note OP said "my files" as well) then Outlook RPC/HTTPS would be preferable
