Trying To Connect VPN To Routing and Remote Access Server on Server 2008 R2
Posted on 2012-08-27
I have successfully connected to my RRAS Server from home using only 1 NIC on the server. I was able to browse server as well as client shares but I lost all other connectivity on my W7 client machine (web, email) even with the "Use Default Gateway..." option unchecked.
So today I went and added a NIC card to my server and since I have a block of 5 IPs from my ISP I asigned it one of those IPs and reconfigured the RRAS using the VPN option and that NIC card which bypassed the router altogether. When I got home I found that I was unable to even ping that IP.
Am I way off base here?
W7 NIC 192.168.1.15(static)/ DNS and gateway 192.168.1.1
VPN setup dynamic and pointing to 18.104.22.168
Main NIC WAN 22.214.171.124/ LAN 10.1.3.32/ DNS 126.96.36.199 & .70/ Gateway 10.1.3.1
NIC#2 WAN 188.8.131.52 then I let RRAS configure the rest (i.e. no gateway, no NET BIOS over TCP/IP and DNS 184.108.40.206 & 220.127.116.11
