Hi,

Here the setup:
W2K server
8 W2K Pro
2 XP Pro
3 Win98Se
Switch = 3Com

Out of the blue !!!!

Day 1:
All Win98SE did not log on the network. Doing some investigation. Try to ping the server IP do not respond, try to ping Server Name respond on first VPN RAS IP. I resolved the issue by adding the host and domain name in  the DNS parameters on the Win98SE.

Day 2:
The day after all W2K Pro, start to do the same thing. So I stopped the RRAS service and everything came back to normal. The RRAS still stopped.

The VPN was working fine for the past months or so

Have you any ideas why and how to fix it "weird" problem?

Thanks


Experiemented something similar, RRAS VPN configured on the server.
Once the RAS Service Stopped everything came back to normal.
Win98SE were pinged RAS IP and not the server IP itself.

Is it you case?

Take a look at this article. I had this problem on a Windows 2000 SBS installation. I ended up using a hardware VPN device as I think the fix is very poor:
