RRAS client can't ping internal network


M

Mike Morgan

I'm having a problem with our win2k routing and remote access server. I can
get the dialup clients to connect, but they can't see past the remote access
server. The server can ping the lan and the remote client. But, the client
can't ping anything on the lan besides the remote access server. Tracert
reveals that the route dies at the RAS server. How do I make the RAS server
route traffic to and from the lan for the clients? I used the wizard to
setup RRAS on the server. I'm using DHCP to assign the remote client
addresses. The clients are pulling IPs fine, but they aren't getting the DNS
server IP for some reason. Authentication is done with IAS. I do have ISA
installed in cache mode for a web proxy. It seems to work fine. I found an
article at support.microsoft.com that said to turn the IPEnableRouter DWORD
to 1 in the registry. I set that and rebooted with no joy. Have I missed
something obvious? Is there a problem with RRAS coexisting with ISA? If so,
is it fixable? I'd really like to leave all of this on the same machine if
possible.

this may help. quoted form http://www.ChicagoTech.net
Can't access the remote network after unchecking "Use default gateway on
Remote Network"

Symptom: After following above instruction and uncheck "Use default gateway
on Remote Network" on VPN connection, you can't access to the remote network
any more. For example, your LAN network is 192.0.0.0 and default gateway is
192.0.0.1; the VPN is 192.0.1.0 and gateway 192.0.1.1.that is connecting to
the remote network 10.0.0.0. After establishing the VPN connection and
unchecking "Use default gateway on Remote Network", your computer use
192.0.0.1 as gateway instead of 192.0.1.1 and can't find a way to 10.0.0.0
network.

Resolution: you need modify the route table manually or refer to our Routing
page on this web. Or check "Use default gateway on Remote Network" on VPN
connection.

We found the problem. Turns out IAS was the culprit. We changed the
authentication from Radius to Windows and all is well. Apparently, IAS and
RRAS don't cohabitate very well. We didn't really need Radius anyway, so I
just did away with IAS altogether. Thanks for your help.
