VPN connection and RRAS


W

wayner

Hi,
I am trying to set up a simple VPN connection between a
win2kpro machine and a win2kserver. The server is a DC
and the WS is not in the domain. I go through the default
setting for RRAS and VPN on the server, it has 1 nic with
a public IP. Then I set up the vpn client pointing to the
public IP, using L2TP. I can ping the public IP, but I
get a 678 error on the client - no answer. I have enabled
dial in permissions for the account, and have set the
default policy to grant remote access. What am I
missing? Also sometimes when I set up the RRAS it locks
out internet access on the server, so I disable it and
start over. I thought this was supposed to be pretty
simple.
Thanks - Wayner

Are there any filters enabled on the RRAS server?

Have you set up routing for the public address?

I have not set any filters that I know of, and I have not
set up any routing. Do I need 2 NICs, or can I use one
multi-homed? I booted into the 2003 server and set up the
VPN server and got it to work just fine on one nic and one
public IP, it gave a 169 ip to the VPN stuff.

Are you able to make PPTP connections to the server ?


Regarding the loss of internet access after configuring RRAS, when you have
a single NIC on the RAS server, you have to go for custom configuration.
This particular configuration, sets up NAT also on the RAS server.
Try adjusting the NAT properties or if it is not necessary, delete the NAT
on the RAS Server.

Thanks,
Priya.
