Internet Access Through PPTP

Everyone, I have a Win2003 PPTP server, and it works great.  We have multiple internal subnets, and I just set up static routes from within the PPTP server to get people access to those other subnets.  Access to our internal network works fine.

What I want is to get clients access to the internet THROUGH our PPTP server.  In addition to the PPTP server, we have a firewall.  I was hoping to route through that firewall somehow but I 'm trying to reconcile how that would work with the current config.  Seems like I'd need to have a default route on the internal interface of the PPTP server along with the external interface, but it doesn't seem like that would work.

I DON'T want them to have to uncheck "use default gateway on remote network" to get this to work.

Thank you,
-S

I got this working.  You can set static routes in the RAS server, so all I did was create a 0.0.0.0 rule that points to the next hop on the internal network.  That seemed to work.
