Can a Windows 2000 Server with a single network card be used as a RRAS Server

Environment - Test Lab.
2 DC's - both W2KSP4
2 Servers - 1-W2KSP4 acting as WSUS (Windows Server Update Services) and 1-W2K3 running Exchange 2003.
1 Workstation
1 Laptop

I want to set up a VPN connection to the lab using the W2KSP4/WSUS. However, it only has one network card. Do I need to have another card for the RRAS connection? I have tried to get this to work with one card and am not getting anywhere, so before I go any further, I need to know if the RRAS needs to be multihomed.

If you want to connect to the Windows 2000 Server with VPN you have to have 2 Nics. 1 - Internal 1 - External. In RRAS you setup your 2nd Nic with a Public IP and setup your services.
