Server 2008-PPPoE-RRAS-2NICs-How do I configure?

Hello!

END GOAL: Setup RRAS on Windows Server 2008.

I've got a Windows Server 2008 machine connected to an AT&T DSL Modem (set in bridge mode). The modem is a Westell MSTATEA. AT&T has issued me 5 static IP addresses. The server has 2 NICs (WAN, and LAN). The LAN NIC is set (static) to 192.168.2.1/255.255.255.0

I want to set up RRAS on the server, which means the server will have to do the PPPoE, Routing, VPN, NAT, and DHCP.

What is the proper way to set this up? I tried doing the PPPoE through "Set up a new connection or network" in the Network and Sharing Center, but this seems like a new connection that i'd have to start every time I booted the server. It doesn't seem right.

I've been thrashing at this for a while, but cannot get it to work. I've included an IPCONFIG /ALL below.

It shouldn't be more to set than "Dial on demand" in the options tab of the connection properties.

Hello,

Does you DSL Modem support making the PPPoE connection? If not, you will need to place a router that can do the PPPoE authentication between your modem and your server.

The DSL Modem with support PPPoE, but it is not a router, just a modem.
Is there a clean way to do the PPPoE with the server? It doesn't sound like there is.

There is no clean way to do the PPPoE with the server. You need to log on to the server to start the connection. The connection can be started automatically on logon but you would still need to logon and stay logged on. Your best best is to pick yourself up a cheap home router, which you can use to make the PPPoE connection.

Not entirely true. RRAS is able to do demand-dialing. As soon as traffic arrives destined for the PPPoE connection, RRAS will try to start the connection.
