VPN to dedicated server / pfsense

We have used OpenVPN and it will be ideal choice. You get 2 free users i guess with OpenVPN.

OpenVPN is a good option. You can setup an OpenVPN server(TUN) in your Windows Server, then add the OpenVPN interface to the correct group in the Windows Firewall(VPN), and ensure the firewall rules allow RDP. Then, you generate your client certificate, and configure it in your pfSense
A more advanced option, but also more interesting, would be to use TAP instead of TUN. That would allow you to have the Windows Server integrated into your network, just as if it was connected to your switch. However, I've never used pfSense, so I'm not sure it would allow such configuration.

Hello all,

I would like to know how others have setup a VPN to/from their OVH server so I can learn the best methods and what to avoid.

We have a dedicated server (running server 2012) that currently we remote desktop into across the internet.
I would like to close this open port and setup a VPN from our office into the OVH server. However I would like this to be a permanent VPN so that anyone on the office LAN can access the server. We are using a pfSense firewall that supports pptp, l2tp, ipsec and openvpn.

If anyone has done something similar I would appreciate the advice, many thanks
