    I setup routing and remote access (VPN), but when I VPN in the status window
    IPv4 Connictivity: No network access
    IPv6 Connictivity: No network access
    Media State: Connected
    Duration: (timer counting up)

    I don't have access to anything on the internal side of the routing and
    remote access server.

    What do I need to do to be able to Remote Desktop to computers on the
    internal network.

  2. How did you setup VPN in RRAS? Did you allow IP routing in the properties?

    Does the server have one or two NICs?

    Is the server a DC? If so, and it has more than one NIC (multihomed), it can
    cause problems with AD, unless it is SBS. Is this server an SBS?

    See if the following help:

    instructions respectively whether one or two NICs but disregard the NAT

    As for using RDP, Remote Desktop must be enabled on each workstation and
    server (Right Click on My Computer, choose Properties, remote access tab).

    Once you believe the VPN is connect, try testing the connection as follows:

    Test by pinging the workstations by computer name (machinename). If that
    doesn't work, then it's either there is no NetBIOS name resolution support
    (no WINS), or the VPN is not configured properly.

    Try pinging by FQDN ( If FQDN doesn't ping, then it's a
    DNS resolution issue possibly by using the wrong DNS addresses in DHCP,or
    the VPN is misconfigured.

    Try pinging by the private IP of the workstation. If that works, and the two
    above do not, then DNS is misconfigured in your domain, as well as there is
    no NetBIOS name resolution support (not using WINS).

    If pinging by IP doesn't work, then VPN is misconfigured.

    Keep in mind, if the RRAS server is internal, then you'll need to port remap
    TCP 1723 and Protocol ID# 47 to the RRAS server to allow inbound PPTP VPN
