Very limited answer, doesn't address why you must set up RAS or VPN both on the server and the workstation. Would like more of answer that explains the concepts behind RAS and VPN, rather than how to use the wizard.

HOW TO: Install and Configure a Virtual Private Network Server (Q30820
This Microsoft Knowledge Base will help you configure and answer your questions.
As to WHY additional configuration on the workstation??
Remote Access and Virtual Private Networks are by defination a means of accessing a remote network (through a server) for resources. This is also a means of protecting and securing a network and resources on that network. This gives one the ability to properly configured clients and servers that use this some degree of privacy depending on how strong of encription is used.
There are several white papers and Microsoft sites that give detailed information on the "how to"!! I hope I answered the why for you. OK Thank You.

The concept of Remote Access Service is to access 'Resources' on a remote site through a server. VPN, Virtual Private Networking concepts are what can be described as 'tunneling' or a pipeline inside the connection to a remote site. This VPN provides added security and encription between the clien and server.
Hope this adds clarification!!
