So I'm trying to set up a VPN server here, but I have a bit of a problem.

All the docs and guides seem to talk about if you're using the DHCP and DNS servers on the machine you're creating the VPN server on - however I'm not.

For the purposes of today's question we're using an Xserve G5 2.0 running 10.3.9 server. The DHCP, DNS and internet access (+firewall) are all handled by a big beefy router thingy.

So my question is, how on earth do I set up a PPTP (or L2TP) VPN service that'll likely work (I can't really test from offsite easily), and not require all the information for DHCP and DNS? Can I just ignore it all? It's just the "starting ip" and "ending ip" that's throwing me...

I'm assuming that the DNS servers I can just enter as the normal network clients see them..
