vpn for dummies

I hope I am not repeating something someone else has posted, but I can't find
a similar situation.

I have a windows 2003 server standard with 2 nic's. The server is set up as
a workgroup. I have installed VPN, shared the drive and set up a user (with
administrator rights) that is allowed vpn access.

I can establish a vpn connection and there seems to be traffic back and
forth. But I can not map a drive or browse the server. A net view gives me
error 53.

Also, when I establish the vpn connection, I can no longer, from my
workstation, access the internet.

nic1 IP 192.169.1.201
gate 192.168.1.1
dns as assigned by isp
file and printer sharing on
netbios enabled

nic2 IP 192.168.1.200
gate none
dns same as nic1
file and printer sharing on
netbios enabled

router has 1723 and 47 open for the .201 ip on the server

Any help with this will be greatly appreciated

OK,

I am guessing you are using Microsoft VPN Client to connect to the server
and this is a client-server VPN. Is that correct?

"Also, when I establish the vpn connection, I can no longer, from my
workstation, access the internet. "

To fix this problem, go to the VPN Properties, Network Tab, TCP/IP
Properties, Advanced, and uncheck "Use Default Gateway On Remote Network"

So...

After you establish the VPN connection:

Can you ping the VPN Router's Internal Address?

Can you ping the Servers NIC 1

If so can you \\ 192.169.1.201 and see the server shares??

Thanks for the reply - I have been out of circulation for a while.

I will try this and see what happens.
