Impossible Question: VPN on Multihomed Win2KServer, No Response on Internet side.

Last Modified: 2013-11-29
I have decided to split up my network traffic between two NICs, one LAN and one WAN. I have all client machines connecting to a hub on submask and IP ranges My Server is also connecting to this hub with IP Now all of the LAN traffic is on one side, as is serviced by MS DHCP and DNS services.

I connected the server's WAN NIC to our Firewall, on submask IP I have the firewall forwarding ports 1723 and 47 to the WAN NIC's IP address of (and have the WAN NIC accepting only those port numbers). The RASS server is also set-up on the WAN NIC IP, however it is using the DHCP on the LAN NIC IP to obtain IP Addresses for our VPN guests.

However, when our VPN users try to connect, there is no response from the server's WAN NIC.

Any ideas?
