VPN subnet question

    Right now to get my VPN to work on our server I had to
    change the client home networks to a different subnet so
    that the server could process the VPN connect and not
    confuse it with the local DNS on the LAN. Is there a way
    to to make all VPN connects to assign a different subnet
    from the server, instead of pooling for the DHCP subnet
    pool assigned for the local lan?

    Thank You,

  2. AFAIK...

    I think you are talking about 2 different things. One is the VPN connector
    IP address and the other is your local IP address. When you connect to the
    SBS server you *should* get an IP that is not in the SBS internal IP subnet,
    but it is on ISA's LAT. However, the SBS has no control whatsoever of the IP
    address scheme that you choose to run in your home lan (which should be on
    an different subnet as well).

    Think I know the answer, but going to give my example and
    see if there is more to my question...


    Server address is

    When I connect from home on the same subnet, I connect
    through the VPN, but I can not get any access to the
    network files, excchange, or anything...

    But if I change my home network scheme to, I
    get in just fine.

    I am hoping for a way to keep the server the way it is
    and the server to reassign a different subnet to the VPN

    This possible? or do I always have to make sure that a
    client machine is on a different subnet?

    Thank you,

    The client & server must be on different subnets.
