Since both networks are disjunct, you need to allow for routing. First, enable routing the RRAS settings.

If the RRAS server is your default gateway, you should not need to do anything on the network. Else your default gateway should have a route for the VPN pool addresses with RRAS server as gateway.

The RAS clients however have to decide whether they allow for "Use remote gateway", which sets the default gateway to the RRAS server, or manually set a route for the network by calling
route add mask

If you are talking about the default gateway for the network workstations, it is

If you are talking about the VPN clients, you cannot enter a default gateway when using VPN.

Could there be a problem because I don't have two NICs in this machine?
