I have set up my XP Pro workstation as a VPN client connecting to an NT 4.0 Server with RAS.  The connection works, but I cannot access anything on the remote network.  (I'm very much a newbie to VPN and remote access, and I'm NOT an MCSE).  When connected, I have the following IP configuration:

Local Area Connection - IP 192.167.1.100 / Subnet mask 255.255.255.0 / Default Gateway 192.168.1.1 / DHCP Server 192.168.1.1
PPP Adapter - DHCP enabled NO / IP 10.0.0.2 / Subnet mask 255.255.255.255 / Default Gateway 10.0.0.2 / DNS - 2 listed / Primary WINS Server 10.0.02

The RAS server sits behind a SonicWall SOHO firewall, and it's private LAN IP is 172.16.0.2 / Subnet 255.255.255.0 / Default Gateway 172.16.0.254

I realize I'm missing something here... any help is greatly appreciated!

In your dialup client settings, Network, TCP/IP, settings, there is a checkbox for [] use default gateway on remote network.
Check that box.
Be aware, however, that you may lose your capability to browse the Internet or check your private POP email whilst connected. You can overcome that by setting a manual route entry as opposed to checking the option above:
 C:\>route add 172.16.0.0 mask 255.255.255.0 10.0.0.2

You'll have to do that evertime you connect, unless you can be guaranteed that you will always get 10.0.0.2 as your IP address, then simply add the "-p" option to the route add statement to make it pemanent
