I'm confused as to how the input filters in Windows 2000 RRAS NAT service works.  I want to allow my internal users unlimited access to the internet, however, on my external interface, I only want to allow TCP port 1723 and IP port 47 (for VPN) in.  Can someone explain to me step-by-step how to do this?  (i.e. the source, dest, port, etc).

Hi,

The filtering on the external interface should be as follows:

a)Allow Incoming TCP "Established" Any Any
b)Allow Incoming UDP SRCAddr=yourDNS SrcPOrt 53 DstAddr =Any DstPort > 1023
c)Allow Incoming TCP SrcAddr=Any SrcPort > 1023 DstPort = 1723
d) Allow Incoming SrcAddr=Any Proto=47 Dst = Any

a) and b) should allow your internal clients to access the Net.
c) and d) should do the trick for pptp

HTH,
