My friend Zaf who is now in Canada gave me an idea to setup my own VPN server to allow Ex Pats abroad to use UK websites such as BBC iPlayer and ITV online. His love for football and also the up and coming London Olympics 2012 made him ask me for advice on how to stream to Quebec, ideally using his iphone or Tablet.

So I built him a VPN Server, it is running on Threat Management Gateway 2010 Edition and Server 2008 R2 Sp1, all purring on my Vmware Cluster.
TMG 2010 ensures all the data is encrypted and free from Malware, giving the best surfing experience possible.

Zaf, I hope you enjoy the effort gone into this solution!
