WIN2K3 RRAS for Dial-IN Help?


Andres Perales

I need some help folks, have spent majority of my day playing /
troubleshooting issues related to my Windows 2003 Server running RRAS for
Dial-In access.

Have 1 NIC - 192.168.XXX.XXX
A Digi Board Access RAS Card with 4 ports and 4 lines all connected to 800
number for dial-in

Set up RRAS assigned my 800 number to each of the ports, using window
authentication, and a local IP Pool of 172.16.XXX.XXX for the dial-in

When I test the dial up from an outside line I connect with my account, and
get a valid IP address, I am able to ping the 172.16.XXX.XXX addresses, mine
and the servers, I am even able to be the servers NIC 192.168.XXX.XXX. I
was thinking that I am good to go, so I tried to ping my mail server which
is on the same subnet as the RRAS Server 192.168.XX.XXX and nothing, I can
not get to any other machine on the inside of my network. I have tried
everything to get this to work, added static routes, removed static routes,
reviewed all of the policies, and nothing, I am frustrated and need this to
be working soon.

If anyone is out there that can help please post or reply to my email

Are you able to reach the mail server from the RAS Server ?
When you try to ping the mail server from the client, use:

pathping <mail server>

instead of the usual ping. This will trace the route that it takes and we
will have a better idea of where the packets are getting dropped.
