Can the Windows built-in VPN server be used in EC2?

tr flag

I have a Windows Server 2019 VM in AWS EC2. I'd like to have a VPN server on it so I can connect to it from my dev machine and run a non-secure protocol across it. I've got the PPP RAS adapter installed, and I can carry out part of the connection from my dev machine. But after authentication, it disconnects and the server side logs an event that says, "RoutingDomainID- {00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000}: CoId={NA}: The user Bxxx\mxxx connected to port VPN4-1 has been disconnected because no network protocols were successfully negotiated."

This page seems to describe the problem and the solution, but I'm not sure whether it can be done on an EC2 machine. It basically says that the RAS adapter cannot successfully allocate new IPs from the DHCP server, so it cannot give one to the connecting client.

Can this be done at all? Does the above referenced solution apply in EC2?

I sit in a Tesla and translated this thread with Ai:

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
