    Mac OSX LION Server configuration Farm
    Hi Guys,

    Basically I want to integrate my new Mac mini server into my home office.
    I have a router connected to my Time Capsule, which is wireleslly connected to my Airport express.
    Now I have connected the server to the Airport express, so that I can create a VPN to access my data when Im travelling but I really have a problem with the configuration...

    Could someone please help me out, I would appreciate it lots!!

    All the best,

    Closer than you think.

    Assuming you are using L2TP (IPSEC) versus PPTP you will need to allow a few ports through your firewall. This is also assuming your server has a static IP address and you know how to port forward services through your firewall.

    The ports required for L2TP are:
    500 (racoon)
    1723 (L2TP VPN)
    4500 (racoon)

    You will also need to setup AFP sharing from the server as well as the VPN service itself.
