just noticed when i look at the VPN connection status, it shows server IPv4 and Client IPv4 address as exactly the same. It is the ip the DHCP server is handing out to the client. i know this cant be correct, but not sure whats causing it

What are your IP schemes? If you have similar IP schemes at both locations (192.168.1.x and 192.168.1.x) your traffic won't know to go over the vpn as it thinks your target is on the same network.

Do you have any more details as to your configuration?

ip schema comlpetely differnt. remote network 10.130.10.0/24 and local network is public ip from AT&T usb Wireless modem.

Windows 2008 server also only has one network card. not sure if this could be the source of my problems?

How are you routing the vpn to the rras server?

Is the RRAS server also your router/gateway and is it internet facing?

the windows server is not the router/gateway. i configured a juniper firewall as the network router and the server is just the domain controller and file/print/fax server.

the server ip is 10.130.10.10/255.255.255.0
and the network gateway/juniper ip address is 10.130.10.1/24

Dont know how i forgot to get back to this question. The problem was not allowing the Windows server hand out dhcp to connected VPN clients. I was letting my Juniper netscreen on site do that, and i was giving the clients the wrong gateway.

Soon as i enabled DHCP for vpn clients connected on windows server, everything worked.
