I have been given the task of looking at MS's PPTP, and MS Proxy Server.
One of the things that the client would like to do is have users in the
field(Internet) use PPTP and connect to our LAN/WAN. I have been looking
for answers, but thus far haven't found what I am looking for. If my
understanding of PPTP works, it can be looked at almost like a bridge
between two networks? So, if a client in the field connects(Via Internet)
to a server running RRAS they would have access to the same internal
segment as the RRAS box?!? Now, if we then wanted that user to access our
private frame WAN then how would the Internet registered IP addresses find
their way through the private frame??? (IE if we used 192.168.xxx.xxx and
10.x.x.x addresses AND the routers knew of no other routes...) I guess what
I am asking is this?
Can that user access the WAN or can they only access the LAN that the RRAS
is connected to?
If routing table changes were made, could they then access the WAN?
