Windows 2000 Adv. Svr. - RRAS set up with PPPoA Internal ADSL Modem

I am running Windows 2000 Advanced Server on my Server (strangely enough), but I have encountered some problems. I have a on board network card on the server and a PCI ADSL Modem. The internet is ADSL but has to be dialled as it acts as somewhat of a ISDN adapter. I can access the internet from the server, but I cannot share it amongst the network.

The server is a DOMAIN Controller so it stops me being able to use ICS - even when I do use ICS, no web pages can be accessed on the clients but MSN Messenger works for some reason.

I know I need to use RRAS to set up NAT for the network, but it will not detect my ADSL PCI Modem as a Dial-On-Demand interface - it is not present as an adapter, at all.

The LAN is to connect the server to the network, and the internet is through the ADSL modem.

If anyone knows how to share the internet amongst the DOMAIN it would be very helpful. Please do not reccomend third party software.

dear sir
a easy way is you must
1.disable windows ICS
2.install KERIO WINROUTE PRO on the windows
this program is a simple way for internet sharing and NAT
in install winroute you select your interface connect to the internet ( ADSL MODEM ) and system restarted
3.install routing and remote access on the windows

if your config in winroute was correct users can connect to the internet from dialup line

"3.install routing and remote access on the windows"

 - Is a little vague, installing RRAS on windows is complex and there are many different options to choose from.


Why do I have to use third party software? Sure this version of windows should be able to deal with a situation like this.

is it not possible to set your client machines default gateway to the servers ip address or the adsl modems ip address this should solve the problem.

also stick a decent firewall on the machine and it should be ok.

No, ADSL(PPPoA) has a dynamic IP address, so thats no use. Plus that wouldn't work anyway. If I set the clients gateway address to that of the server, the server needs to route the internet - hence why I need RRAS to work.
