Hi micromc,

You have a few things out of whack.  

First, there is no reason to use a subnet mask of 255.255.0.0 with your 192.168.200.x subnet.  Use 255.255.255.0 instead.  (Plus, that's what's on your client workstations anyhow).

Then, remove the WINS server IP from the WAN NIC and put it on the LAN NIC instead.

However, since you clipped the IPCONFIG's you've left out the dns search suffix info, which is vital to being able to resolve names on the Internet.

Default gateway for the clients should be the LAN NIC of the server.

Run the Configure Remote Access Wizard.

No tutorial necessary.

okay, if I sound like your mother here... I apologize...

But you need to look it up!

(or this can be interpreted as a --- "teach them to fish" lesson)

Open Help & Support on your SBS and in the search box enter "Configure Remote Access"
