WIN2K SVR RRAS VPN behind a firewall.

By kmcconkey ·
If I want to set up a VPN using WIN2K RRAS in a single server environment behind a firewall is it wise to use PPTP to keep it simple and how do I get around routing traffic with only 1 NIC in the server (RRAS seems to want 2 NICS)? I can't have 2 NIC's in the server on the same subnet can I? All of the documentation I have found talks about having 2 NIC's (1 private side, 1 public side), but my server does not have direct access to the internet since it is behind the firewall. Couldone of you guru's offer some help to a newbie, please?

Why the Firewall ?

If you do not have access to the internet with this server why are you using a firewall ?
If you do have a router then you will need two Nic`s one internal and one external which will get you to the outside world. Then you can use PPTP with your VPN.
