I am looking for the reasons for using VPN on windows server.

Hi,
by using VPN on server, do you mean setting up a VPN server on Windows server or just connect your Windows server as a client to another VPN server?

there are a lot of reasons why people use VPNs,
here is an example:

let me know if you want more specific VPN use cases

@HotCakeX Hello,

I want to connect windows server as a client to another VPN server.

Solution

@MichaelJohnny 

 

if you have Windows server GUI, you can do it from the Settings

 

this is on Windows server 2019

This will also help you create a .pbk dial up connection file which is easier to move/distribute to other machines.

if your VPN server is a non-Microsoft one such as OpenVPN, Kerio VPN etc, you'll need to download the correct client for them.

@HotCakeX Thank you very much you made my day <3

Oh Anytime! <3
