W2K VPN with 1 NIC and behind FW

By courtney ·
I have a small test network with a W2K Domain controller behind a Linksys router. I was able to setup the VPN on it and have Linksys router forward its private I address to a public one. So I can VPN into the domain controller, but I cannnot get into the other clients. It won't allow me to even ping them.

Is this becase I need 2 NIC? If I do can both of the NIC's be on the same subnet? Can I keep just 1 NIC and change other settings?

When I VPN and do a IPCONFIG /ALL I see a 169. IP, soit is not the same as my network which is 172.16.x.x

Do you have an internal DHCP server?
If this is the case then your VPN client aint recieving an IP from any scope created for LAN.

If theres no DHCP server internal and all your clients have static assigned IP then you have to configure TCP/IPon client machine to an ip and mask of that of your internal clients.(make sure you dont duplicate any IP in use on your LAN)

your answer to can both NIC`s be on same subnet is yes,

Give us a bit more info on your internal LAN so we can be of more assistance

IE: how many clients,DHCP?DNS? subnet`s?
