Okay... Here it goes!

I've noticed a couple issues wiht my Small Business Server 2003 Box that is fully upgraded with Service pack 1 and exchange sp2 and all updates...

VPN sometimes doesn't connect, it can't authenticate...
RCP over HTTP configures, but it just prompts be for my password over and over again...
i'm thinking it may not be an issue with either of them, but instead an issue with some sort of authentication something or other...

Let's start by having you post an IPCONFIG /ALL from the server to take a look at your DNS.

Also, have you used all wizards in configuring your server?  Or have you attempted to manually configure?

to be noted...

WAN is DHCP to Shawcable using DynamicUpdate with ZoneEdit to keep the A-Records accurate...

Yikes!!  That's your problem... get yourself a ROUTER and put it between your server and the CableModem.  Let the router grab the IP address from Shawcable.  

In any case, you need to get rid of vn.shawcable.net as your DNS suffix -- that's what's really causing the authentication issues and password requests.  Because it keeps trying to figure out what domain to authenticate against.  

Please see http://sbsurl.com/twonics for the recommended configuration of your server.
