I have a problem with a vpn that I am setting up

Server

Dell Pc
2 X network cards
Win server 2003

I can connect to the vpn remotely but I cant access or ping the network behind it, I have set everything up as stated by Microsoft but still cant get a connection to the network behind the server.

I think the problem could be with the ip addresses I have assigned to the nics but am not sure, the first is sett to 192.168.1.70 and the second to 192.168.1.75 both on the same subnets, from what I have read this could be the problem?


Any help would be great

yes,you have to route  between subnets.  If the server is not acting as the firewall, you also have to add a route to the  VPN network on your router

The server does not have a firewall, i have set up the router to forward to the server is this what you mean?

                           Server

                               |
PC----------------------|
                            Firewall
                                |
                                |
                            VPN Client

The VPN client is connecting to the server. the PCs Default gateway is the firewall. If they don't know how to get to the VPN Network it will fail.  YOu either have to do a route add statement on the network pcs or add a route to the vpn network on the router
