I configured Windows Server 2003 as an RRAS server to handle our VPN needs. I'm able to connect clients to the VPN from outside the network but it doesn't seem to get an IP from the DHCP server.

I have the DHCP server IP configured an a DHCP Relay Agent but it still doesn't seem to hand out IPs and I can't quite figure out what is going on.

The DHCP server is on a different VLAN and subnet than the RRAS server but they are able to route between eachother without an issue. However, it appears that when the clients are connecting to the VPN they aren't getting IPs from the DHCP server.

Can anybody lend a hand?

You have configured the DHCP Relay agent on the RRAS server - as per support.microsoft.com/kb/232703 ? Also can you confirm that the DHCP server has a scope that is on the same subnet as an DHCP scope on the server. –  Helvick Sep 15 '10 at 16:20
I don't have a scope setup on the same subnet that the VPN clients connect to. Do I need to setup an additional DHCP scope to be on the same subnet? –  Luniz Sep 15 '10 at 16:45
