Routing problem with Win2k3 SP1

Guest

We have a simple (two office) network set-up, LAN in UK office (Single subnet
192.168.1.0/24) and a LAN in French Office (Single subnet 192.168.2.0/24) all
XP Pro clients. These have been linked for 18 months, using dedicated Win2K3
RRAS servers (Demand Dial, Static Routes and Address Pool). Other Win2K3
servers handle AD, DNS etc. With SP1 for Win2k3 installed (on the RRAS
servers), everything looks OK (In RRAS Admin) however you cannot connect, or
Ping through the tunnel (to or from clients) it is possible to connect and
Ping from the RRAS servers to each other. I've used PING, PINGPATH, TRACERT,
ROUTE PRINT and NETDIAG there are no differences in their results, before or
after SP1.

If I take SP1 off, everything is fine again (nothing else is changed). I’ve
tried this many times over the last few days, with 3 different RRAS servers.
Always the same result. I think there may be an issue with SP1 here. There
seems to be a number of similar scenarios appearing on web communities

More details…
Each Win2k3 RRAS server can ‘ping’ the whole of the remote LAN (Win2k3 RRAS
server and XP Pro clients)
Local clients can ‘ping’ everything locally and nothing through the tunnel
(on the remote LAN)
Each client has a route for the remote LAN (for example 192.168.2.0 mask
255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1) and IP routing is enabled at the RRAS servers
I’m ‘pinging’ using IP Addresses. ‘Ping’ Error is ‘Requested Timed Out’
‘Tracert, from any client, stops after (correctly) showing the IP address of
the local RASS server Intranet NIC.
I know this seems like a RRAS IP Routing issue, However this is a ‘textbook’
set-up that works correctly without SP1 installed.

I am having some other problems and would like to know how you took SP1 off?
(i.e. uninstalled it)
