OK I am trying this one again.  I have a Windows 2000 Advanced Server running ISA 2000. I have setup a client VPN and I can connect to the VPN.  Once connected I cannot see the internal network.  I am not able to ping the isa router or external isa nic or anything else.

I think I am connecting with PPTP although I have L2PT setup it will not allow connection with this option.

What do I need to do to see the internal network.  This is worth a million points to me however I have learned you can only have 500.

PLEASE HELP

hmm.. either the VPN connection's not *quite* right.. but appears connected.. or, more likely, it's routing.. i.e. the ISA servers not configured to route VPN connections through to anywhere.
Once connected, do you get an IP address (start > run >cmd > ipconfig /all).. if so, can you ping your assigned VPN IP address..?

Well I can now get to the internal network by ip address but not by name and I am not receiving an internal ip address?

to resolve the names, you either need to setup your connection to use the internal DNS server or edit your hosts. file (note no extension) and add lines for each machine (i.e. servers) you need to contact

format the lines in the hosts. like this (the IP address is just an example):
192.168.1.1 servername

.. which makes me think.. if you're connected from a similarly addressed location, you may have problems.. ideally they should be 2 different subnets.. i.e.

host network 192.168.1.0 (subnet 255.255.255.0)
remote network 192.168.2.0 (subnet 255.255.255.0)

hope this helps
