Please help - how to configure server2003 machine as router

By bbock ·
Hey Guys,

Ok, I am in a test environment trying to learn how to install and configure RRAS correctly, so the machine will work as a router. I am not a networking guy and need help.

So, I have internet coming into a little D-Link router w/NAT, then that goes into a server2003 machine with two NICs configured with RRAS for LAN routing. NIC #1 is named "external" and NIC #2 is named "internal." Finally, I have a w2k machine at the end of the chain connected to internal NIC.

D-Link router is 192.168.1.1
External NIC ip is 192.168.1.73
Internal NIC ip is 192.168.0.1
w2k machine is 192.168.0.2

After I install Routing and Remote Access services, no matter what I seem to do I cannot get the w2k machine to ping anything besides 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.1.73. Of course this means I cannot get any Internet access or find shares on the 192.168.1.0 network either from the w2k machine.

Obviously, I am doing something incorrectly or forgetting to do something. Maybe I have the incorrect default gateway setup? I don't know. Help!

You really don't need RAS to get Windows to route

Part of the problem is that RAS does some weird stuff lan-to-lan, and all sorts of features (like dead gateway detection) and security settings rear their ugly head.

This may sound lke a stupid suggestion, but XP pro, with a simple registry hack, will route, and it's much simpler to get working.

Did you already check this article to make sure you had the RRAS portion set up correctly?
