Making a dedicated win 2003 website server with 1 nic a VPN server that is hosted by a hosting company (godaddy).
Posted on 2009-07-13
I have a webserver that will host websites that I want to also make a VPN server to allow client machines to run "local" reporting while connected to the VPN.
I installed RAS, DHCP, and SQL along with IIS for my sites. I can't for the life of me figure out how to configure RAS to give client machines access to the server for reporting.
Not to mention every time I start RAS the server drops my RDP connection. I create a bat file and task that will disable RAS every minute so I can at least log back in and re-try configurations.
So what I need is a client machine to connect to this server via VPN then DHCP assigns the client a "local IP". All this and still keep websites running. My whole confusion is in the routing I think. I can't figure out how to give the server a "local ip"... It almost sounds like I need a virtual nic. I need help... Thanks in advance!
