I have a single SBS 2003 server with 2 NIC cards. My ISP is Comcast and I have purchased a static ip from them. I am using a Terayon TJ717x cable mode (provided by Coamcast). The cable modem is conencted to NIC 1. My 2nd NIC is for my intranet going to a variety of computers. My understanding is this configuration provides a desired level of security using the SBS 2003 as my firewall. My intranet and internet connectivity going out is all functioning fine. I have full access to the internet from the server and all workstations. Email works fine as well. However, i am not able to ping the server from the internet. Ultimatly I want to accomplish 2 things. Access to my intranet from the internet and settign up a VPN.
