  • IPSec VPN

    Hello!

    Before I used PPTP with Chap 2 for VPN connections to our server (Windows 2003 standard edition),
    but now our manager wants to increase the security level.
    I need to configure VPN through IPSec.
    Please help - advise what is the best and simplest way to do it?
    At the moment I don't use any remote access policies, everything is very simple.
    Can I configure VPN IPSec with using ..let's say..preshared key?

    thank you in advance

    Re: IPSec VPN

    Implementing IPSec VPN (also called L2TP) is a bit harder that PPTP. What you need to configure is different ports through the firewall, a preshared secret, or, in case of the need of higher security - a CA and digital certificates for all the users.

    I would start by reading the Windows 2003 Deployment Guide:
