On my LAN, the W2K3 server has a MS PPTP VPN connection to a remote MS W2K3 server.  The LAN server can ping the remote server and access all services required on it.  LAN server has static internal IP address of and IP address as issued by the remote server.  I want to be able to connect a different client on the LAN,, to the remote server through the VPN that has been established between the two servers.  Is this possible or am I on a hiding to nothing?
Huge thanks in advance
