W2003 - RRAS Server - VPN-Dialin setup


T

Treasure

Hi,

i wanted to set up a win2003 server as a dialin VPN server for internet
users to access our lan.
the server has 2 network cards. both in my lan. my gateway to the internet
is a normal router, which registers dyndns. the port 1723 is already
forwarded.

a second w2003 server is the dhcp server of my domain.

when i configure the RRAS server (as vpn dialin) my internal interface gets
no ip address.
i wondered that i dont have a PPP-Adapter in my ipconfig table - but i think
that depends on the error of my internal interface...

i searched microsoft and many websites, but didnt find anything.

any suggestions?
thank you very much in advance!
best regards

Not sure about "my internal interface gets no ip address". If you setup the server as RRAS, it is better to have a static IP. posting the result of ipconfig here may help.

Does it work if you try to connect from a local machine using the
server's local IP? It is a good idea to check this before you try to make a
connection from outside.

You will find that the internal interface will get an IP address as soon
as you make a successful connection. This is a symptom that nothing has ever
connected, not a cause.

Hi,

ok, thanks! now i got a ip on the internal interface. connection from inside
works fine, but connection from outside times out with an 619 error on the
client and a 20049 error on the server.

i googled 2 houres today, but didnt find a solution. i didnt know that is
that difficult to set up a ras server.

i forgott to say:
pptp port is forwarded correctly trough the firewall on the lan-cards
address where the server listens to...

It isn't difficult if the server is directly connected to the Internet.
Problems arise when you have to get past a router/firewall. You have proved
that your server setup is OK by connecting locally. So your problem is
getting to the server from the Internet.
