Why they are trying to use RAS?  It is simler to publish the exchange
through a firewall and gain mail via IMAP or POP3.

and RAS
Hi All
If any one can solve this I will buy them a drink.
I have a customer running:
Windows 2000 (PDC) with Exchange 2000 on the same box.
They are trying to setup RAS so remote users can connect and pick up
email.(On the same box)
Every time I enable RAS on the server the local users are unable to
logon. The error is "can not find domain controller"
Stop the ras service all works again.
I think it is a routing issue but I have installed RAS and set the
routing and IP forwarding to off.
Any ideas will save me grey hair.
Many thanks for any help.
