    I have 2 sites conncted by PPTP VPN, Site 1 have 2 DC, one Win2003Srv and
    Second SBS2003SrvPrm and Site 2 has 1 DCSrv act also as RRASSrv, connection
    done and clients can bing each other from both side, the problem is I can't
    ping SBS2003Srv from site 2 even the GateW is configured properly, I can ping
    SBSSRv from RRAS Srv but not from clients at site2, as a resault I couldn't
    access the services located at the SBS2003Srv like portal or mail

    If you can see the workstations at a site but cannot see the server, it
    is probably because of the default gateway setting on the server. Is the
    server acting as a router or a remote access server?

    If the default gateway of the SBS server is not the VPN router, the
    return traffic will not come through the VPN tunnel. You could probably fix
    it by adding a static route to the SBS server to route traffic for the
    subnet of the "other" site to the VPN router, so that it is not sent to some
    other gateway.

    Thanks Bill for your help, actually SBS act as DC,Exchng,SQLSrv , there is a
    nother machine act as RRAS, DefGatW for SBS is set as RRAS Srv, I can ping
    SBS from site2 using RRAS for the site2 but not by client of site 2.
