Security Configuration Wizard on RRAS server?

Hello,

I am part of a small company and we have one Windows 2003 Server in our environment that takes care of about 70 users. Since we only have one 2003 server, we have most of the roles installed on it: DNS, DHCP, File Server, Printer Server, Routing and Remote Access Server, etc. I have installed SP1 and have tried running the Security Configuration Wizard that comes with SP1 to enable to firewall on the server, however, it says this cannot be done on a RRAS server. Is there a way to get past this? I mean do you have to manually enable the firewall and put in all the exceptions? Since this is our only server, I would like to be able to use the wizard to make the server more secure. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!
