IP address for remote computer connecting to VPN on sbs 2008 server

JohnYork asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have a SBS 2008. The operating system had to be totally re-installed due to some hardware failure. I  previously had The VPN working. I have not changed anything on the router so it is still set up.  I went thru the wizard setting up the VPN on the Server from the server console. Now when I  connect to the Vpn I do get connected however even though it says I am connected it tells me I have no network access and it gives my remote pc a '169.' address instead of a '10.10.10.z' address that the server and workstations internally have, I do have the users on the workstation with VPN connection rights so I know that is not the issue. I'm just not sure where or what I do on the Server to get it to hand out the'10.10.10.x address to the connecting VPN remote pc. Thanks for your guidance !
