Long story short I am stuck with a modem with a fixed default gateway and address.  I need to set up a dual nic configuratoin such that I can access the internet as well as my internal network.  If I set up RRAS with NAT on a machine w/o DNS I can achieve this but I cannot utilize DNS - it sets it up like a home network.  If I try the same configuration on the DNS server, it doesnt work at all.  Any suggestions?

I'm  a little confused on your setup.

You have a computer with a modem (I am assuming dial-up) and a NIC.
You use the modem to dial into the Internet (I am assuming)

The NIC connects to a switch (I am guessing) and the switch is connected to other computers and this is yoru Internal network.

If this is your setup, why are you runnin RRAS?  Why not just setup the computer with the modem and the NIC to use Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)?

If you need DNS on your internal network, setup and run a DNS server on the ICS computer and point all of your computers to it as their DNS server.  It (the DNS server) should then be configured to resolve any names for your internal domain name and forward requests for unknow domains to your ISP's DNS servers.

No, no modem, bad description on my end.  The modem was the T1 "modem".   It's all good, I simply needed to restart.   Silly Occams Razor

Thanks

As always, a 3 day dubacle ended up being a simple solution.  I always post to EE as a last resort but in this case, found out after I did so.
