Dialup client IP config not right

Posted on 2004-11-10

 I have Windows 2000 server SP4 running as a dialup RAS box. I have it set to give clients that dialup an ip from a pool of 2 ip's.

When a client logs in they get the right IP but, don't get the right subnet mask or gateway.  How can one configure the mask and gateway
for the clients.

BTW the clients get IP config like so


They should get a /24 mask and a REAL gw.

Any help on getting a dialup box to give out NAT IP addresses and use one public IP for out going traffic would be appreciated.

    RAS clients are supposed to get a mask of all 255's and a gateway that equals the IP.  This is by design.
