While the preferred method is to implement a PPPoE router and not install this software, there are many reports that this software does work and does not cause issues that other PPPoE software has caused when loaded on servers.

In order to implement this version you will need to download and install this software:

PPP over Ethernet Protocol, Version 0.96: RASPPPOE_096.ZIP

Please read this page IN FULL before implementing this installation:



Please also review user comments on the SBS2K newsgroup

Arrays | <SBS Server Name> | Network Configuration | Local Address Table


If the external NIC has an IP address of and the Internal NIC
has an IP address of, then the range in the LAT should be to (which excludes the external NIC).


Please note:  While the suggested IP addressing schema of the SBS 2000 is 192.168.16.x, you can utilitize any private IP address as recommended.  Thus if you have a prior set up of 10.0.0.x, you may use that as well.  When attaching Win98, or WinME computers, you may need to use hosts and lmhosts files to assist them in attaching to the network.  Please see click on logon problems for additional detail.


For additional features that can normally only be done with a static IP address, you may wish to sign up for dynamic DNS services such as or that will provide you with these abilities.  You will need to install this software on your server and open up a port in ISA Server as follows:

Name :[Insert your own]
ip protocol: TCP
direction: both
local port: all ports
Remote port: Fixed port
Remote port number: 1227
