Hi,
by using VPN on server, do you mean setting up a VPN server on Windows server or just connect your Windows server as a client to another VPN server?

there are a lot of reasons why people use VPNs,
here is an example:

let me know if you want more specific VPN use cases

if you have Windows server GUI, you can do it from the Settings

 

this is on Windows server 2019

This will also help you create a .pbk dial up connection file which is easier to move/distribute to other machines.

if your VPN server is a non-Microsoft one such as OpenVPN, Kerio VPN etc, you'll need to download the correct client for them.

@HotCakeX Thank you very much you made my day <3
