Changing the Default gateway in Routing and Remote access

I am running RRAS on a Windows Server 2003 system.  I currently have an issue with configuring a gateway on RRAS.  I do not want to use the gateway that is assigned to it by default.  We are combining 2 different pipes here at work and we want to change the, lets call it the .2 network to the .1 network so that we can keep VPN uninterupted.  So basically we want to force the .1 network, which is how people access us through VPN, and turn it into the .1 network so that the present .2 network becomes .1 and the old .1 becomes extinct.  Right now we are connecting the network pipes early next week and we want to complete this in a manner that changes with that.  I believe that if it is possible to update the gateway to point the new .1 network then all I have to do is update DNS records to propagate the changes.  I just started at this company last Friday and this is something I was thrown into.  If you need clarification I can help.

Thank you

disabling  "Use default gateway on remote network" option from the Advanced TCP/IP settings of your VPN conection

from what I read it looks like it puts the default gateway info into your routing table. netstat -r  
so add in your own static routes

I would assume you are referring to the client side.  I am trying to set it up so that I can change it from the internal RRAS on the server.  I want to be able to configure RRAS with the current settings to change from the .2 to the .1 gateway.  Can this be done?

through the your server routing tables you can change this. You could also just add a static route in which I beleive takes priority.

We know what the source will be for the Static route however is it possible to use wildcards for the destination?
