cannot rdp or ping new windows 2003 rras
Posted on 2011-02-11
I just installed Windows 2003 R2 with Routing and Remote Access. This server accepts PPTP VPN connections from staff we have in the field. We had a Win2000 server doing this for years but needed to replace the hardware and just went with W2003. All works well but for administrative reasons we need to RDP to this server. Neither ping nor RDP work. I have read the MS articles on this with regard to Inbound and Outbound filters, but their KB article doesn't fit what I'm seeing in the RRAS mmc. The server just has one NIC that is enabled. There is a firewall that is set up to do port forwarding to forward port 1723 from the Internet so we have never used separate external and internal NICS. Anyone know how I can get RDP (and ping) to work on this server without disrupting its successful role as our RRAS server?
