- Has the RRAS server been set to not allow external clients access to the rest of the network? Remember that it is possible to restrict remote clients to just the server they are reaching.
- What address is the client getting when you are connected? Make sure it is one on the internal network. If the internal network is using a private address scheme, and NAT to reach the Internet, your client needs to get an address on the internal network. NAT doesn't work in reverse, so it won't give your client an address on the internal network.
- Is IP routing set up? You may need to configure IP routing -- check these settings in RRAS, but also check the routing table on the machine.
