At a client we are running SBS 2003.  We have a Linksys WAG54G router.  Using the system manager in SBS, i allowed VPN (pptp) access to the server.  I have allowed pptp passthrough on the router plus opened 1723 (TCP) on the router.  I have allowed a group of users to connect to this vpn in the RRAS policy, and also tried each user to allow dial in access in AD.  Either way, you can make a connection to the server and it says its connected, but i cant ping the server by IP address or by Netbios name, which means i can't connect to network shares or check exchange email.  Have i missed anything here?
