XP Routing Setup

Posts: n/a
      21st Feb 2007
I'm having trouble setting up routing on an XPP box. What I will be doing is
setting up an XPP machine and a printer/scanner at a remote location. The
computer will connect to the office via vpn software through an internet
connection. The user will scan paperwork and email the softcopy back to the
office. The printer/scanner has the "scan to email option", using its
ethernet port. I plan to use the office Exchange server as the smtp engine
for this (it's also the destination of the emails). Therefore I want to
connect the scanner/printer to the XP box to use the vpn connection.

At the office, I have set up a lab to work through the basic configuration.
The XPP box is connected to the 192.168.215/24 office network. I installed
a second NIC, settings are:
I enabled IP Forwarding (KB315236)
A Win2k machine simulates the printer/scanner. It's NIC settings:

A crossover cable directly connects the two machines. Both can ping each
other, but the 2k box cannot ping the office network. Am I still missing
something here? How can I troubleshoot this? Below is the routing for the
