    ok, long story but please read through

    I have a windows 2003 server, installed RAS, setup RAS, and I cannot VPN
    into it, I keep getting error 800.
    I cannot ping the server when I have RAS running, once I turn it off I can
    ping the server.
    I do not have any firewalls running, no anti virus
    here is what i have done:

    opened several ports on router, 1723, 47-51, 3389, 500, still no
    changed the static routes
    went through manage servers and step by step on the help for setting up ras
    I have done several other things but cant remember..

    I have my laptop plugged into the router and the server is into it also, I
    can vpn to its ip address and it doesnt give me error 800, but i cannot ping
    I cannot get out to the internet on the server,
    I used to be able to until just recently

    I have a t-1 connection, and it comes in to the router and then plugs into
    the server from there.
    now I have another nic in the server for another network but that ip is at
    172.x.x.x, the one i have for this connection i have an ip at 192.168.x.x.
    please give me any suggestions

  2. We may have two different issues here.

    1. After enabled RAS, the server may block ping and modify the router so
    that we can't ping and access the Internet.
    2. In many cases, VPN error 800 is GRE issue. Make sure the router allows
    VPN pass through. Or these search results may help.
