Hey guys,

I seem to have a problem with my PPP adapter... in the screen shot enclosed you will see the IPv4 adapter address stating 192.168.16.67 (preferred). This is incorrect...its suppose to be 192.168.16.2 which is my SBS08 server which is running RAS for my VPN clients. It seems this has changed and I cant figure out how to change it... my clients can connect but cannot access network resources such as shared drives due to this I believe... PLEASE HELP!

# Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click Network.
# On the Services tab, click Remote Access Server, and then click Properties.
# Remove any ports that the Modem Sharing or Fax Sharing services use exclusively.
# Click Add, and then add the port you want to use for the proxy server Auto-Dial feature.
# Click Add, and then add any ports you want to use for RAS or Dial-Up Networking.
# Click each port, and then click Configure to configure the dial-in or dial-out settings for each port.
# Under Dial out Protocols, click to select the TCP/IP check box.
# Next to TCP/IP, click Configure, and then configure the RAS Server TCP/IP settings.

I think the last one may be the key..

Coast-IT,

I dont see any of these settings as you specified.. I am running Small Business Server 2008. What OS are you referring to with these directions?

Ok, I have just gone through this process myself, and the reason that your clients cannot connect to this is not down to this IP address.

I do apologise for the non Windows 2008 instructions.

I think you may need to redo this process.  i have found a great page where you can actually set up 2008 as a SSL VPN, but the VPN bit may appeal  to you.

Apologies again, and good luck.
