Windows 2000 server..Routing and Remote Access..

when Routing and Remote Access is running I can't access the internet..can't ping from command prompt..can't use IE Browser, etc.  When I stop the RAS service all is fine.

This is a multihomed server used for remote office to connect in as a router to router vpn setup.

Racked my brains for several hours now..3 days..help!

A few assumption:
 - one nic is on the internet
 - one nic is internal network

Don't gateway the nic's via TCP/IP properties (that's my guess to your problem).
Don't add static routes on the command line.
Do all your routing and gateways through RRAS.
Only the Internet connected nic should have a gateway associated with it (via RRAS).
Disable all but TCP/IP on the Internet NIC.
Set the input and output filters for the Internet nic in RRAS, to only accept VPN (l2tp and/or pptp) packets from the other RRAS router.

Hopefully you figure the problem out, I'm curious to what the problem is.

Thanks Slydog...to my surprise w2kserver did lock down the adapter by putting on input/output filters in RAS.
