PPTP RAS to Win SBS 2008 issue

Last Modified: 2012-04-26

I'm having a hard time configuring remote access to a Windows 2011 SBS server.

I have installed the routing & remote access role. Configured the DHCP relay. Defined the allowed users.

On the client side (tried from Win7 and Server 2003) I get past the username / pass validation (ie if I put something invalid I get rejected) then I have the message "registering computer in the network" for approx 1 min on Server 2003 and an Explorer hang on Win 7 (can't cancel, just hangs).

Nothing obvious in the event log (both server or client).

I'm probably missing something fairly obvious but can't seem to figure it out.

Any pointer / suggestion most welcome.
