So. I'm trying to setup my laptop to work some magic. I have a 4G aircard for my laptop. I'd like to be able to take it into the field, and have my laptop provide internet access to a few other machines as well as provide remote VPN to external users. I would think I want to setup DHCP for the internal users with NAT to share the internet connection, DNS to provide name resolution and the firewall to stop the baddies and stupids. I woudl also want to enable the VPN access with a password. I found that the gateway setup wizard under NAT in server admin sets that up for me perfect. It turns on DHCP(which I need to change from 192.168.1 to 10. something), DNS, NAT and the firewall all while asking me a password for my external VPN users. Perfect. Problem is it doesn't work, and I have no clue as to why. It appars my setup is all OK, but when I plug in my windows 7 laptop and ask for DHCP info, I get no reply. If I hard code my windows laptop to 192.168.1.10, I can ping my 'server' without a problem. If I plug my windows 7 laptop into my linksys router, it gets an IP without issue. So, am I missing something? I reformatted my laptop and tried to install it from a bare install with no luck. Is there something else I need to do? Could this be a DNS issue? Thanks!!!!!!! This is driving me batty!
