windows 2008 vpn server

YankeeFan03 asked
i have setup a windows member server 2008 and installed the dhcp and VPN roles.  i can log on and connect to the server but not getting an ip address from the scope i defined on the vpn server.  i setup all the ips as regeistered to insure extra security on the dhcp assignments.  my mac address is assigned one of the 9 available ips but still it connects and no ip.  i get the standard 169... address.

any ideas where to look?

first i suggest to give the vpn a different range like if your network is: 192.168.1.x

then try 192.168.2.x..

second try this guide: http://www.buchatech.com/2010/06/how-to-setup-vpn-access-on-server-2008/
i resolved this by loosing the dhcp reservations and using straight dhcp.


had to back out my reservations then all worked as described.
