This week I decided to do a quick walk-through on how to setup an SSTP server in Windows 2008 or 2008 R2. Actually, the video only shows Windows 2008 R2, but that is better anyway because it is easier to change SSL certificates in Routing and Remote Access (RRAS) in Windows 2008 R2 than it is in Windows 2008.
Since the instructions are so similar, I will just point to a previous article I wrote a while back on Bauer-Power. That article was written for Windows 2008, but the steps are essentially the same. (How to setup SSTP in Windows 2008)
I really like using Windows RRAS with SSTP as a VPN. It's easy to setup, and unlike appliance VPN's, you don't have to license individual users. Plus, SSTP uses SSL encryption, and port 443 which is opened outbound on most firewalls because it is so common.
Plus if you want to use two-factor authentication with it, you can use Phone Factor, a tool we talked about in episode 34.
What VPN technology do you like to use? Let us know in the comments.
