how to allow a VPN connection to work the exact same way as a dial-up RAS connection (have the remote access server do routing)?
Posted on 2004-04-30
i want to be able to dial up to an ISP from a workstation when i'm away from home, and initiate a VPN to my home win2k3 server and then have that server become the remote access server and route all internet traffic for the workstation as well as have the ability to access the local shares on the win2k3 server
at the moment, i've worked out the actual VPN. the VPN works w/o any issue, and i am able to access the local shares on the win2k3 server, but beyond that, i can't do anything. i'd like to browse the net as well. i know i can choose not to use the remote server's gateway, but i don't want to do it that way. i want all traffic to pass through the win2k3 server.
this has a lot of diagrams. i hope they better explain what i want to do.
so i connect to the VPN and it becomes like this, physically:
logically, it'll be (and it is):
but this is what i want it to do:
so here, the ISP and the win2k3 server are both behave the same way... as
the RAS to connect to the internet :)
right now, to expand a bit on 3.
it's like this:
i want it to do both the lan and internet/wan bit.
i want it to do this (sumarized):
(incoming traffic)-------> /VPN NIC/win2k3\primary NIC\ ---------->(outgoing traffic)
i hope i didn't overdo it with the diagrams. :)
