Hi,

I configured VPN Server on my windows 2003 VPS which has a single NIC using this link:
http://www.howtonetworking.com/vpn/2003vpn11.htm
I also set the static IP address from 192.168.10.1 to 192.168.10.100.
I enabled Dial-In for "vpntest" user.

Now my device connects to the server through PPTP VPN. The server assigns 192.168.10.6 to it. I can ping server on my device. also on server I can ping the device successfully.

the problem is that my device does not have Internet access. Here is my route table. I thought there should be something wrong with routing process:

I found the answer myself. I should have enabled NAT/basic firewall when I configured routing and remote access. Then in NAT/basic firewall I should create a new interface. Tick the public interface and enable NAT on this interface.
