I have both the TCP/IP and NetBEUI protocols installed. All laptops are able to log on to the RAS server successfully, can access the Internet via the dial-up connection and even download from external Internet e-mail accounts. They just can't get to or even see the shared resources on the server. If I disable TCP/IP and leave just NetBEUI, they can see network resources, but can't access the Internet.
Technical Information: I have DHCP setup on the server (Range: 192.168.1.100 to 200) and Dynamic DNS is also setup, as well as WINS. Laptops are issued IP addresses (confirmed via IPCONFIG) but they don't show up in DNS, or the WINS listing, after they have logged on via RAS.
Two interesting items: When the laptops log onto the network directly (via Ethernet) the gateway address is correct: 192.168.1.1. When they log on via RAS the gateway is their DHCP assigned IP address. If I try to manually assign an IP address to the laptop, the server rejects it via dial-up, whether or not it is within the above allowed range.
I suspect I am missing a setting in the DNS, but can't seem to figure out what it is. I'd appreciate any help you might be able to give.
