vpn on file server

By calval ·
Quick question.
Are there any known issues with putting a pptp/vpn server on a w2k server that is a DC and file server?
I thought I heard somewhere that it can't be done, but have nothing to back that up.

Thanks in advance.
You haven't let me down yet.

The configuration that you wants works fine. I've had this configuration working in a test environment for the last 4 months.

Use RRAS to create your VPN PPTP ports, and stick your box behind your firewall, or in your DMZ which ever is appropriate on your network.

You only need to enable PPTP as the tunneling protocol if you are using Windows 9x, Win NT 4 clients. If your clients are going to be Win2K then use L2TP as your tunneling protocol. L2TP is inherrantly more secure as it uses IPSec in tunnel mode to encrypt packets (rather than PPP for encryption like PPTP).
