    I have a win sbs 2003 srvr configured with 2 nics. 1 for
    the lan and 1 for the internet. the lan network is
    192.168.1.*. The internet nic gets its address from the
    firewall through dhcp. The internet address is
    192.168.111.*. The firewall has VPN connectivity
    builtin. I can use vpn to connect to the firewall. In
    doing so I can ping any address given out by the
    firewall, including the internet nic on the sbs srvr. My
    problem is that I cannot determine what I need to do in
    order to ping on of the pcs on the local lan. PLEASE,

  2. Your servernics should both have a static IP.

  3. You won't be able to ping the PC's within the SBS network since they are
    firewalled and NAT'd. You'll need to VPN into the SBS network instead of
    just VPN'ing into the Router's internal network (which is the SBS external
    network). Hopefully your router will support VPN passthrough and can
    forward port 1723 onto your SBS server's external NIC. On the SBS server
    run the Configure Remote Access Wizard to setup VPN. Give your users
    permission to VPN in and you should be good to go.
