Can RRAS filter by IP address which people can access PPTP (port 1723)?

Can you use RRAS on Windows 2003 (SBS Std)  to filter by IP address which people can access PPTP (port 1723)?


I'm back yard network guy - leaning as I go - with some basic training (Cisco and MS years ago).  I'm using SBS 2003 (STD - no ISA) without a firewall for a couple of weeks ... I know, I know - me bad ....  we've had lots of touble with the network, and we think it is the new firewall device to blame so we're taking it out of service to test things for a bit - looking better so far.

A domestic router (DLink DSL-604T GII)  makes a connection to internet, and to the server using a seperate NIC and subnet to the rest of the office.

Shieldsup port scan shows common ports are either closed or stealth.  

PPTP was not working so I port forwarded to the Server, and now when I specifically scan that port, it shows as Open ... (and we can now make a connection)

I would like to have this fixed today if I can, so thanks for your responces.  It is very much apprecieated.
