Internet sharing and Dial up access

We have a Windows 2000 Server with 2 Network cards, one for the internal LAN, the other for Cable Modem access to the Internet. Our server also has a dial up modem.

We can access the internet from our internal LAN with "Enable Internet Connection Sharing" selected. Can we also access the Internet via the dial up modem connected to our server or is this only possible via the internal LAN?

We have set up "Accept incoming connections" with the Network Connection wizard on the server.

(We want to dial our office server from home and use it's high speed Cable modem to surf the net! We can connect via the modem and see files etc but not surf the internet on the server)

Can you help?

You need to set up the remote access server portion on your Server. This would then allow access to the internet.

This is NOT east to set up properly.

Here are some links.

  I gave you the link to Win2000 RAS setup. Here is a better link at the same site that has all settings with screen shots even.http://www.helmig.com/j_helmig/rastcpip.htm#client You do have to have the right TCP/IP settings     (correct IP address) for your server setup. Also you have to startup the RAS service on the server to wait for an incoming call. It's very similar to PCAnywhere, where you have it wait for an incoming connection.

I hope this helps !

Hello SysExpert,

Thanks for responding to my question.

Two of the Links you give above appear to be out of date with: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/network/vpntwk.asp
going to a generic moved/removed page and http://www.helmig.com/j_helmig/rastcpip.htm#client also moved, going to www.wown.info. Which shows how to setup the connection with Novell Netware (not used) and NT Server. Were these the correct links or is there one specifically for W2000 Server?

Can e like to allow Internet Connection Sharing without giving the dial-up modem access to the VPN?

Meanwhile I'll go through the MS Knowledge Base articles.

Thanks & Regards.

Hi,

I managed to get it going after setting up Routing. Your new Url was still for NT4 and not Windows 2000 which as you know is quite different. There are still some issues about the IP address assignment which upsets the server after an initial connection but I should be able to sort those out. Also not sure how open to attack it may be but I have given only 1 account access with the privileges of "Guest" Group - enough for Internet access however.

Finally someone helped me figure out that the "Accept Comment as Answer" was there way of on the right of the screen!

Your answer for NT helped point me in the right direction for Win 2000 - Thanks
