Windows 2003 VPN

I now have a Windows Server 2003 Virtual Private Network setup on my home network. A lot of the questions on the next Microsoft exam I am studying for are on routing and remote access and one of the practice labs was to setup a VPN. I created a new server with two virtual network adapters and installed the VPN role. I am using PPTP so I setup my router to forward port 1723 to the servers IP address. I also had to create a resource group and create a remote access policy and add that resource group to the allowed connections list. I was able to test it from a separate network and it is working well. I can use remote desktop or ssh to connect to any of the virtual servers or even my home PC from any external network with an Internet connection.
