A VPN server has to have two NICs. One for public connection (what you connect to / connection to the world) and one to connect to the private network.

Go buy a cheap server nic and throw it in...

Edit: Well... doesn't have to, but it's a best practice and should have two NICs.

Thanks for your advice.

If so, i will setup one more network card then how to set IP address for network card 1 and network card 2 for SERVER with windows server 2008 (network card 1 and network card 2 plug together with SWITCH).

Please give me the example.

Thanks in advance.

You may need a static IP Address from your ISP. Then, if you have a router/modem, you will need to setup port forwarding on the router. Go to portforward.com for that. Then set each network card with a static IP address. There may be a better way to do this, so you may want to wait for more peeps to weigh in.
