There are a lot of posts arround the Internet but are not useful.

I have setup RRAS as a VPN Server on windows server 2003. I can connect to it and access resources on the server however I cannot access Internet through the server.

The server has two network adapters both having public IP addresses. I want users can connect to VPN Server through Internet when connected all their Internet traffic routed through the VPN Server.

What are your routes after establishing the VPN? –  Hennes Nov 21 '12 at 19:09
Generally, you would configure the VPN client to use the gateway on the remote network. Have you enabled that option on the VPN client? –  joeqwerty Nov 21 '12 at 19:20
When use public VPN services such as VPNMakers.com I don't need to set advanced settings on my client side connection. I believe this server related issue. I don't know what option to enable for allowing users access server's gateway. –  Fariborz Navidan Nov 21 '12 at 20:23
Sure you need settings. You just download the VPNMakers.com settings file which includes all the advanced settings. The client needs the setting for the default gateway enabled. In any case you should go CHECK IT ANYWAY, just to see if it works. If it still doesn't work tells because that is useful troubleshooting information. –  Zoredache Nov 21 '12 at 21:00
option "Use default gateway on remote network" is checked. If I uncheck it I will have access to both remote resources and my own Internet. However I want my Internet traffic pass through VPN Server's gatweay. This is confidentially needs something configured on RRAS but don't know what it is. –  Fariborz Navidan Nov 21 '12 at 21:08
