ISA 2006 VPN Clients

I've got ISA Server 2006 running on Windows 2003 server. My main goal
 is to get a VPN up and running. I have a separate server running DNS,
 DHCP, etc. That's a Windows 20003 server called TE-DXB.
 
 I've configured the VPN and my remote clients (mostly WinXP) can get
 connected and authenticated. When I run ipconfig, I can see that they
 get assigned an IP address from the DHCP pool of TE-DXB. The DNS server
 is set to TE-DXB IP address. However, the subnet mask is set to
 255.255.255.255 instead of 255.255.255.0 like the computers on the
 internal network. I can't connect or even ping any computers on the
 internal network from my VPN client. I assume it's because of the
 netmask.

 Where do I set the netmask for the clients?

1. The mask is supposed to be 255.255.255.255,....leave it alone.

2. Establishing VPN only does just that,...it only establishes the VPN.   Absolutely no access will be allowed until you create access Rules to control the traffic

From: VPN Clients
To: Internal
Protocol: <whatever>
Users: <whatever>

3. Ping does not mean squat.  Ping only test ping,..it does not test anything else.  Ping may even fail and everything else works, because allowing Ping is separate and distinct from allowing anything else.
