VPN Server with Windows Server: Installation and Configuration


The SSTP tunnel is based on port 443 (HTTPS) which can be used in most WIFI connections.

To work, the certificate authority must be known to the clients.

It is possible to use a self-signed certificate on the server, in which case the certificate must be installed on the clients in the Trusted Root Certification Authority store. If you are using a standalone or enterprise CA, you just need to deploy the authority certificate.
