I configured kerio VPN tunnel today between headquarter and branch office. Everything worked at last, but at first i had VPN server disabled and couldnt connect the tunnel. in this article overview
ttp://kb.kerio.com/product/kerio-control/vpn/configuring-ker io-vpn-tunnel-1304.html
it is explained that kerio control can be used for 2 different purposes:
-Kerio VPN tunnel to connect LANs
-Kerio VPN server to connect clients (for example, desktops, notebooks, mobile devices, and so on)
So i thought that if i dont need mobile users to connect to my LAN and just need branch office to be connected with the headquarters, i could just disable VPN Server, and create a VPN tunnel to connect my LANs. But it didnt work until i enabled VPN Server back on.
So my questions are, did i do correctly? Cant i disable the VPN Server? if i cannot , whats the use of the VPN Server interface IP in this case?

VPN server must be enabled in order to use any VPN connection (IPsec, Kerio VPN client, Kerio VPN tunnel). It's the primary endpoint.

When you have site-to-site VPN, you must still have VPN server interface enabled on both ends - they create a transport network used to route your LANs together.
