Hi All, so I set up a virtual RRAS server, routed my firewall to it and I think I missed a step. I can connect to it, get authenticated and see the users in the remote access client list, but no one can access any network resources. I probably have to configure the client pool somehow, any suggestions please?

Is the client assigned an IP address? By default RRAS will use DHCP to assign addresses from the network where the Local Area Connection is configured. You can change that to use a static pool. In order to change it in the RRAS Manager right click the server name, select properties, then on the IPv4 tab add a static address pool. This pool should consist of unused addresses (by other machines or by the DHCP scope) of your LAN subnet.

Good Luck

Yeah, clients were getting IPs, you could see them. I really dont know what happened. I went back to a snapshot of the VM when it didnt have RRAS, recreated RRAS, and its all working now.
