I was going to setup a VPN server to allow LAN access over the Internet through a secure channel. Was going to achieve this, adding functionality to a Windows 2003 server, however I see that the modem/router (Draytek 2800G) has this capability itself. I was wondering if it would be safe enough to enable VPN access configuring the Draytek in place of the Windows 2003 server, assuming the modem's firmware won't be updated in the future, that is if an exploit is discovered it won't be fixed

So your question is "is it safe to set up a vpn on a device that won't be fixed if an exploit becomes apparent?" The answer is "no". Am I misunderstanding you? – Paul Jan 16 '13 at 9:05
