    My server is 2003 with 2 Nics an internal and exteral access. Everything was working. I did change the ip of the external address from 10.1.10.5 to 192.168.5.5 because I am trying to implement a VPN router. After I added the router and set it up with static IP, my WS was able to access the internet for awhile. Then I was tring to setup Remote access and I might have changed something in there that caused it to stop. But I did remove RAS from the server and still the WS can't access the interenet.
    The server can access the internet fine with the new settings but other WS can't access the internet unless I add the address from the new router manually to the WS.
    Any Ideas?

    Internal address
    192.168.10.5

    external address
    192.168.5.5

    VPN router setup with static IP information.
    192.168.5.1

    Cable modem
    10.1.10.1

    So you have a separate router and server? Or is it a server you are trying to use as a router?

    I am guessing it has to do with RRAS. Without more info it is hard to say. I would start by providing a bit more info on the issue. Any error messages/logged events?

    I have put everything back the way it was and still the WS can't access the internet.
    the server is running DHCP. the WS get an ip no problem. I can ping the internal and external address fine.
    internal
    192.168.10.5
    external
    10.1.10.5
    I can't ping the gateway
    10.1.10.1

    the external Nic on the server has the proper gateway and can access the internet fine.
    there are no errors in the event log. the only one wasm 53258 and MS said to ignore it.

    How does your RRAS setup look? You are doubling NATing and i think there are better ways to set it up. If you want your 2k3 box to be a vpn concentrator then you need RRAS, furthermore, you need RRAS to do your "double NAT."

    I think the issue here is basic routing. You are trying to do a NAT translation without anything actually processing it. Normally this is done in RRAS. You will need RRAS if you want your server to pass packets from one network card to the other through NAT.

    I would make sure your NAT in RRAS is working/setup.

    But I had the WS accessing the internet before I activated RRAS. Then I installed RRAS and it was still working. It seem to stop after I added a linksys router. But I have removed the router and put back the original ip numbers. And i disabled RRAS. Should I reactivate RRAS?

    Well man, i dont know what to tell you except change your design. I am sure you can get it to work with the equipment you have but its just a bad design. I think you should consider using the 2k3 server as a router or setup your router correctly. This double-NAT is just going to give you problems.

    I would recommend you google what you want to accomplish and see the best way to go about it.
