VPN Access over Broadband To Exchange SBS 2003

Hi

OK, now i am confused. I have a Windows 2003 SBS server set up. On all our laptops i have set up a pptp vpn connection to the office so that users can connect from home broadband at 512k.

So far so good. VPN connects great, can ping exchange server name and IP.

Start Office XP and cannot connect to server. I have a hosts and lmhosts file set up, I can ping server.local and ip of server.local without problem.

Does anyone have any pointers?

Have you setup your RAS Policies yet?

I'm sure you have done most of this:

I have similar set up.  I found that on the client computer the first dns ip address has to be set to that of the Exchange Server.  2nd dns can be isp.
