+ 0 Votes Have you tried..... traevis 4 years ago Although it's not strictly an answer to how to see your server, I had the same problem and got round it by mapping a network drive to \\servername\directory Although I still can't see the server in Network, I can access all the files that are on it. I can use the internet just fine when I use my VPN - though it runs faster if I uncheck the option routing my connection through the gateway at work. Some offices don't let you do that though - I believe because it may pose a security risk. + 0 Votes PROGRESS!! Trkkr 4 years ago Oh man. After all this and I found something that fixed ALMOST everything. I can now connect to the server shared directories and use Exchange through the automatically created VPN package that the server creates when you setup the RRAS through the wizard. All it took was opening up port 500 UDP on the router! So it looks like you run through the Remote Access Wizard, open up port 1723 TCP, port 500 UDP, run the sbspackage.exe on the client and it should work.... Wierd side effect is that my manually created connection with the WINS removed still won't connect. IP Differences between the two: SBS Connection: IP: .105 GW: .105 WINS: .105 Manual Connection: IP: .106 GW: [blank] WINS: .105 I'm guessing that has something to do with it but I haven't investigated further yet. I'll report back if I figure it out. If anyone knows why that is and how to fix it, feel free to chip in. Personally I'm just happy to have got this figured out this far. This, of course needs to be figured out if it gets set up on Server 2003 Standard since there is no sbspackage.exe created that way. + 0 Votes humm interesting .. CG IT 4 years ago from your post: "If you ran the Wizard from the things to do list, during the setup process it will ask for an address range and subnet mask. you can either have DHCP create this or specify your own static poll. Either way, the number of WAN miniports in RRAS needs to be the same as the number of addresses in the pool." This never happened. 1. Clicked "Configure Remote Access" 2. Welcome screen (Clicked Next) 3. "Enable Remote Access" (Checked "VPN Access"), Next 4. Server Name. Our domain doesn't reside on our server so I put our Public IP in here. 5. "When you click Finish, the wizard will configure remote access as follws:...". Clicked Finish. 6. It does it's configuring thing, pops up asking to setup password security minimums, which I decline, and that's that. I see in all the documentation that I read, that it's talking about the page where you set address ranges and subnets and all that, but I never have anything to that effect come up. Maybe that's where the issue is? Our server handles our DHCP requests so I figured it just set those settings up automatically. hum well then DHCP should have a pool of address and it then assigns them to the WAN miniports so if you open up RRAS [ start / admin tolls/RRAS you'll see in the left pane ports these are the WAN miniports RRAS uses. typically you'll have r ports. there will be addresses in DHCP for these ports. You'll also have 3 rules the first on of which is mobile users [sorry gave wrong security group]. Members of this group are allowed to connect. After that, if you forward pptp 1723 to the SBS box, and enable PPTP passthrough on the perimeter router or make a rule allowing GRE 47 you should be good to go. A connection made is simply a connection. What's available to users with the VPN connection is the same as LAN domain users.
