The server at has to be able to route the traffic from one NIC to the other NIC, which I don't believe it's going to do by default. – joeqwerty Sep 23 '11 at 11:51

installing RRAS used to silently enable IP forwarding on the machine, but this might not be the case anymore. Check your RAS config to see if forwarding is enabled. Also, with RRAS you are able to specify packet filtering rules - check that the current ruleset is not blocking your transfers.
