I have a windows 2008 r2 server set up running RRAS as an incoming VPN server for remote clients. Everything works fine from the VPN side, clients can connect and gain access to the network correctly. However I have an odd issue. If one logs on to the VPN server it can ping the internal network just fine, but it cannot ping out to the internet. I get a "general failure" error.

I would not worry about this to much as the server is functional however it is preventing me from being able to do windows updates on this machine
