I attempted to create a VPN server on Windows server 2012. I installed Active Directory and used the wizard option to make all the configurations. When all was done, I tried to connect to VPN using Windows 7; but I got an error message saying "Remote computer could not be established". Please tell me where I went wrong and what must I do to correct the connection?
