Configuring Windows Server 2003 as a router

My platform is Win 2003 Server Standard. I have a Windows 2003 Server set up with two NICs, a WAN and a LAN. The WAN connects to a PIX firewall and the LAN to a switch. The server itself connects to the Internet fine, but clients connected through the LAN switch do not have access. Am I missing a RRAS configuration?
