  • Server 2003 configuration with PPPoE DSL + VPN + NAT

    Hello,

    I am stuck with this problem and unable to figure out any solution and would really appreciate any help on this. I am having a DSL internet connection which i need to dial-in through PPPoE. On Server i have two network adapters:

    Public Network Adapter (Connected directly to DSL Line)
    IP Address: 192.168.1.1 (Manually Assigned IP Address)
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0

    Private Network Adapter (Connected to a switch to which my other workstations are connected)
    IP Address: 192.168.0.254
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
    Gateway: 192.168.0.254

    Now, how do i setup RRAS such a way that i have VPN, NAT and automatic dial-in to my ISP?

    Has anyone setup such kind of network??

      I'm having the same problem as the original post and I know I'm a newbie and probably just don't get it because the simple things beat me up but I've read all the articles referenced here and they didn't answer the question.

      I have a Server running server 2003 enterprise R2 and 2 nics am trying to set up so I can VPN and cannot get it going. Network works great, can log onto internet OK. I am going through a DSL. I have read and read and am still hitting a wall. I opened the appropriate ports in the DSL router - didn't work. I set the router to bridge only and tried to setup RAS as describded in book - didn't work.

      No doudt I am missing something but don't know what.

      If someone could please treat me like a dummy and describe step-by-step setting up 2 nics to dsl router and configure RAS to allow VPN I would much apptreciate it.

        Why not get a DSL router and use it on your "external" NiC. Set it to dial on demand or never drop connection and let it do all the work

          Here's a better PPPoE link
          http://support.microsoft.com/kb/283070/

          But using Tom's advice would be best.

            Tom;

            OK, I've setup the DSL router to try to let it do the work for me but I still don't get it. There is something I'm missing. I have the server setup as a DC with DNS and as I said, everything seems to work great except I still can't VPN.

            If you could provide a little more instructions on what you mean by let the router do the work, I would appreciate it.

            Remember, I'm a newbie so please provide specific details.

            Thanks

              Hi Introuble,

              Your router should let you do port forwarding -- check the configuration pages -- mine is under "Port Redirection" and it might also be under "NAT" or "Network Address Translation.

              Lets say your router is 10.0.0.254 and your server is 10.0.0.1 (I know this may be different, but use it as an example as I can do a screen shot)

              The standard VPN ports are PPTP (port 1723) and L2TP (port 1701)
              Set up your router like the screen shot (just rows 8 and 10). Your row numbers will be different, the settings may look different, but the idea is the same.

              If you post the make and model of your router, I'll try to find instructions on how to do it exactly.
