starting vpn&routing drops network

By Gerry A ·

I have 2 W2k servers - one a PDC and the second a SDC, both running AD. I'm trying to set up a simple VPN interface for remote administration. I've tried just about every sensible combination of options in Routing and Remote Access on both servers, and whenever I start the service on either machine, no matter what I do, the machine drops connectivity to the LAN, however the VPN connection works fine. Again, this happens on both servers, so I know it?s most likely me doing something wrong here and not the servers. I guess I?m having a major brain fart or something. If someone can point me in the right direction I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

well in addition to what Omni outlined, you've got to create rules as the default RRAS rule is to deny access. Further, user account settings in Active Directory, by default, are denied access.

Since you've tried what Omni has outlined, which is basic RRAS setup, then the next issue to look at is access rules.

Since you didn't mention rules that you created, kinda need that verified before giving a suggestion.

I'm not sure I understand - even with the default rules, when I turn on the RRAS service it stops all connectivity with the LAN and only connections made to the server via RRAS operate. This should not happen.
