Server 2008: limited connectivity over VPN
Posted on 2009-04-14
I have a plain vanilla Server 2008 box that I want to set up as a VPN server for our network.
I installed RRAS, and when I try to run the configuration wizard, it won't let me use the VPN server wizard because I only have one NIC card. Instead it tells me to use the custom setup.
After clicking custom, and next, I select ALL of the "features" and it goes through some motions, and then a window comes up to start the service.
So I assume that those "features" are all at their defaults at this point.
Here's the kicker, from an off-site location, with the VPN client set up on a windows vista machine, it "connects" to the VPN server at the office, but only with "limited connectivity".
No internet, no network drives, can't even ping the server itself.
I tried following some of the tutorials found here on experts-exchange, but found myself in the same place, the VPN connection wizard wont run because I only have one NIC card.
Internet -> modem -> router -> switch -> (server and networked computers)
