Trying to setup VPN on W2K Server

Hello,

I am trying to setup a VPN on my server.

I start to run "Configure and Enable Routing and Remote Access" I run into a
snag. As I go through the screens I come to a place to "Specify the
Internet Connection that the Server Uses". Here I show my LAN connection
(this is the NIC in the server.. it has two IP addresses) and another line
showing <No Internet Connection>. When I select the LAN card I get "You
have chosen the last available connection as the internet. A VPN Server
requires one connection to be used as the private network connection" I
can't seem to go any further. If I select "no internet connection" I can't
seem to get anything to work.

I can browse from the server to the net just fine. I also have a router in
place where the gateway is 192.168.0.1...

Thanks for any help of suggestions!

I think I am on the right track.. I now seem to be having problems with the
router (a Linksys BEFVP41). I believe the server and its settings are OK..
time will tell.

I went ahead and selected <no internet access> and went forward from there.
I did have a few services turned off (when I built the sever which I had
disabled) that I had to have start automatically. After that is seems to
start up and is running..

I will tell you, from everything I have read, the more I do the more
directions there seems you can go in. I just can't believe SOMEONE hasn't
written a STEP-BY-STEP (do this, then this, check this) manual. I had
downloaded some stuff from Microsoft and you can tell that have a plenty of
PhDs there. Over 60 pages of nothing except what a VPN can do. There's not
even anything telling you how to config a client (at least I couldn't find
it), but I did figure it out.

If I get this all figured out I will !
