Remote Access Kill Connections

By natebroomfield ·
I am using my Windows 2000 server for clients on the local LAN. The server has 2 NIC's (NIC1 & NIC2)l.

I am trying to install VPN. I go through the Routing & Remote Access wizard, and select NIC2 as my connection to the internet. After I do this, I am able to gain access via VPN client. However, local clients can no longer connect, the server cannot see the internet or ping the router and the Default Gateway on NIC1 is lost.

If I disable Routing & Remote Access, everything is restoredto normal. Is there a way to have VPN without losing all of my other connectivity?

nic 1 must be your exturnal nic. Tcp/ip with the correct dns and gateway must also be selected. The bindings get all out of wack trying to used the 2nd nic.
Also make sure that the bindings for file and print sharing is disabled for nic1. NIC2 should be setup like you have nic1 if everything is working correctly without route access enabled.

Too bad this site doesn't still allow 1/2 credit. Your suggestion allowed the server to access the internet, but the clients still can't find it (which is the more important issue). If you can help me get them connected, I'll give you the points

Go into Properties on the vpn dialup definition, and behind the tcp/ip there is a check box labeled something like "use default gateway on server." Uncheck this box.

What is happening is that the vpn is adding a default gateway to the machine's routing table that is masking the normal default gateway.

You may need to add a specific ROUTE command in order to access networks on the far side fo the vpn if the RRAS software on the far side does not have RIP running.

Good luck.

VPN is working fine. The problem is on clients that are local... not using VPN.
