How do I configure ISA Server to allow client PC to establish VPN to outside Server?

I am having a problem allowing a client inside of my network to connect to a remote Server running VPN services. The problem seems to be that the request goes out from this client but when trying to get a reply from the VPN Server it can't get thru my ISA Server. I do have this server setup as a Proxy. I opened ports 1701 UDP, 1723 TCP for L2TP Traffic. I also opened ports 4500 udp, and 500 udp for IPSEC traffic. I also enabled "pptp through ISA firewall".
Any help would be appreciated.

What ISA server are you using, and what type of VPN Server/vendor/technology are you using as well?

The ISA Server is Windows 2000 ISA Server. The VPN Server is not known but we are using the Windows VPN Client. Hope that helps.

You can try this.

It is a fix to allow better L2TP connections from a NAT. That may very well be the connection type as it has issues coming from a NAT.

Whenever this person attempts a connection using a wireless isp connection on the laptop, it works fine, it's just when they try to connect from inside our network that they have the problem.

That would be the case. L2TP does not like to connect from inside a network. That is why they put the above update out.

Do I have to upgrade to Service Pack 2 to get this particular fix? The reason I ask is that this office runs a lot of applications that are not standard Microsoft products. I'm afraid that I will have problems with incompatability with SP2.

Thanks

Not that I know of and I have not used the fix. I currently run PPTP client connection from other networks and it works fine but I am going to want them to use L2TP and anticipate needing this. If they are using L2TP it may help.
