I have a small office network setup with only one server and 7 workstations all 2K.  The server is Windows 2k server with SP3 and it is also a DC with DNS, DHCP and WINS.  I recently configured RRAS to have remote users connect to the network.  I have the server with two nic cards.

NIC 1
IP ADDRESS:  192.168.1.2
SUBNET:        255.255.255.0
Gateway(linksys): 192.168.1.1
DNS:              192.168.1.2

NIC2 (RRAS)   192.168.1.5
SUBNET:        255.255.255.0
Gateway(Linksys): 192.168.1.1
DNS:              192.168.1.2


When I enabled and configured RRAS on my DC, I chose to use the NIC2 for RRAS.  Everything seem to enable and go fine.
I tested a few of my workstations inside the network and they were able to connect to the RRAS with no problem.  

I have two problems.  1.  My users inside the network lose all internet connection.

2.  I cannot connect any remote users from outside of my network.  It says that the server does not exist.  I have never configured RRAS before and I only got as far as having the internal users connect to RRAS using a vpn connection.  Once I disabled the RRAS then my internal users had access to everything again.  

Please help!

I've solved problem 2 from my first posting.   The only problem I have now is that my users inside the internal network lose all connection to each other and the gateway.  When I run an "IPCONFIG /ALL" on the DC the original NIC loses the entry to the gateway.  I'm assuming that this is part of the problem.  So NIC 1 looks like this:

NIC 1

IP ADDRESS:  192.168.1.2
SUBNET:   255.255.255.0
GATEWAY:  "EMPTY"
DNS:        192.168.1.2
