Server set up with LAN not connecting to Internet

A user has a 2003 server set up with two NICs- a WAN and a LAN. The server itself connects to the internet fine, but clients connected through the LAN switch do not.

I have a 2003 server set up with two NICs- a WAN and a LAN. The WAN connects to a PIX firewall, the LAN to a switch. The server itself connects to the internet fine, but clients connected through the LAN switch do not. Am I missing an RRAS configuration? I've set this up numerous times on SBS2003, but I am stuck. We are running Windows 2003 Server Standard.
You'll need to configure your Windows Server as a router, then point your clients to this server as their default gateway. Check out this tutorial to get you started.
