windows server 2008 vpn?

Posted 16 June 2016 - 09:29 PM

Hello i have an old dell poweredge 2850 and i have to use windows, unfortunately it only supports windows server 2008. I want to use this as a vpn server but noticed that win 2008 had its end of life last year.
Does this mean that stopped patching windows server 2008 remote accesses (vpn) as well?
Thank you

--specifically i was thinking of using a l2tp

After doing a quick google, it seems that you are correct Windows Server 2008 has now ended it's mainstream support (Something that i have not noticed).

However it does look like it's in it's extended end support stage.

Complete list of OS and there support stages:

FAQ Section - if you go down to point 6 it describes the differences between support.

Your welcome, your thread threw me as i didn't think 2008 was completely out of support yet.
