Hi experts!

I have a problem setting up my DSL connection with RRAS, the connection works well in the server, but I cant share the connection with RRAS.

Has anyone tried one working approach?

I would like to not buy an external router.

Thanks for any suggestion.
Alex.

Is it a USB or Ethernet connection to the DSL box?

THE CONNECTION IS VIA ETHERNET, I HAVE USED A CABLEMODEM BEFORE WITH RRAS (ROUTING AND REMOTE ACCESS) FROM WINDOWS 2003 SERVER AND IT WORKED JUST FINE. BUT NOW WITH THE DSL I CAN'T SHARE THE INTERNET WITH MY LAN USERS.

YES, I'M USING THE SERVER AS ROUTER, IT HAS 2 NICS ONE ATTACHED TO THE LAN AND THE OTHERONE TO THE DSL BOX, IN THE SERVER THE INTERNET IS REACHABLE, BUT IN THE LAN ISN'T, IN THE ROUTING AND REMOTE ACCESS CONSOLE JUST SHOWS TWO NETWORK INTERFACES, INTERNAL AND LOCALAREANETWORK, BUT IT DOESN'T SHOWS THE DSL INTERFACE.

ok

you need to add it in to route to it

on you inside network you net to setup a nat.

lan 1    xx.xx.xx.xx  some public address  to the internet

lan  2   10.0.0 .1  a private network      this will be a nat


lan2 network would be like this gate 10.0.0.1 mask 255.255.255.0
range of address 10.0.0.2 -10.0.0.254

try setting the default gateway on the lAN NIC to the IP address of the NIC that is attached to the ADSl router.

ok, I solve the problem of sharing the internet connection... The RRAS only works with NIC that has the IP assigned by the DHCP or a reachable gateway, so a typical DSL connection (Dynamic IP) doesn't work, so to work-around this I install an PPP Protocol in the NIC connected to the DSL box from Internet and It works with RRAS, since no comment about this issue was added the points still avialable for another related question here is:

Replacement question: (same 500 points)
I have now 2 Internet Access in 2 NICs in one Server, it's possible to combine it to speed up the internet access for my LAN users thrugh the RRAS? or another W2003 Program? for example Load Balancing?.. another approach could be to have 2 Servers each one with his own Internet access and combine both with some Load Balancing or QOS for my LAN users...?

Thanks for the comments.
