RAS giving me the runaround!

By mcarricato ·
I set up a Win2K client to use DUN to connect to WinNT server with RAS installed. The server has DHCP installed and hands out addresses from a scope of 192.168.1.100-192.168.250.

The RAS client connects and is authenticated but when I check the ipconfig I get the following:

IP Address: 192.168.1.101 (this is fine)
Mask: 255.255.255.255 (What?!@#)
Gateway: 192.168.1.101 (OK I'm confused)

I want this client to be able to access the internet through the default gateway of the server which is 192.168.1.1

What can I do?

Microsoft Q160699 might help. RAS doesn't pass along the dhcp options other than the IP adress. The gateway will show as the RAS client's ip by design. We use the 10.x.x.x range with a class C subnet. RAS assigns it a Class A subnet.
There was an earlier issue (resolved in service packs) that a RAS server getting its own DNS settings from DHCP wouldn't pass it along to the ras client. We set the servers manually anyway so that one never showed up here.
