SSL VPN?  You darn right we do that! This was a surprise to me, so I have to imagine that it is new news to a lot of you as well.  With Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista SP1, you now have the ability to set up a VPN using RRAS (Routing and Remote Access) to use port 443 (HTTPS - or SSL) as the transport.  It's a "firewall friendly" kind of VPN.Jim Holtzman - Technical Writer, and the guy who created the screencast.

I found a good screencast all about how to set it up.  

Here also is the Step-By-Step guide for doing it yourself:
