Microsoft Free SSL VPN Solution in RRAS

SSTP is a free port 443 (ssl/tls) based VPN that requires Vista SP1+ as the client and a Windows 2008 Server as the VPN gateway. Kevin Blogs:

This was a surprise to me, so I have to imagine that it is new news to a lot of you as well.  With Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista SP1, you now have the ability to set up a VPN using RRAS (Routing and Remote Access) to use port 443 (HTTPS – or SSL) as the transport.  It’s a “firewall friendly” kind of VPN.

I found a good screencast all about how to set it up.

Here also is the Step-By-Step guide for doing it yourself:
