RRAS & IP Numbers

Q: RRAS & IP Numbers

I am using an NT box as a router for a small network, I have NT 4, SP5, IE5, IIS 4, & RRAS installed on the server.
I am running NT 4 on the other box.
Everything works like a top except I can not ping the router IP number from the other boxes on the network.
I can ping the IP number assigned to the NIC on the server, and can ping out to the internet, browsers, chat rooms, & e-mail all work fine. But because I can not ping back to the router IP number I can not enter my pow chat rooms which run on the server. I have had this system working fine once before, but due to a reformat on the server I lost this part and am just overlooking something.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have been given the task of migrating our email system from our old internal system to an external POP3 based email system. The problem that I have is my DNS entries in the email clients are both the same (ie: pop3 and smtp both point to the same server with the same DNS entry, I would like to use RRAS for PAT. I already have my RRAS server up and running and NAT is installed, but past this point, I am at a loss. I am thinking that looking at the online help in windows 2000 Server I am going to have to do this through the command prompt with the IP route commands, I have printed out a list of those commands, but am not really sure which ones to use.

Basically what I want to do is to point my DNS entry to the RRAS box and then have the RRAS box go and take all traffic comming in on that adapter with the POP3 port to go to one IP address still on the POP3 port, and then take all of the traffic destined for SMTP's port on the same adapter to retransmit it out to another IP address still maintaining the same SMTP port. both the POP3 and SMTP IP addy's are external, public IP addy's. My RRAS server exists behind a firewall, but has a second NIC in it that is NAtted to the outside world by my firewall, and I am currently running it as a VPN box and it works great for that.

PS (although this shouldn't matter) my VPN box exists on a different subnet then my DNS boxes, but all of the routing between them is configured properly

A:RRAS configuration help

POP3 and SMTP are different protocols communicating on different ports. I suppose RRAS could do the authentication but this seems like a roundabout way to do things. If you have a firewall just open the ports for pop and smtp and point them to the correct IP address.

I'm trying to setup a VPN server on W2K Server (SP3). That same machine is running as my web server, and is also running terminal services so I don't have to go upstairs to work on it. When I start RRAS everything is shut down (as expected). I can no longer see the web site and my TS session is disconnected. I move to the console and open what I would consider the appropriate incoming filters in RRAS (like port 80 for web services) but for the life of me I can't get to the web site. At this point not even the VPN is functioning, but I'll worry about that once I figure out this RRAS/IIS contention. Please help.....


An update. I just opened all filters, incoming and outgoing and can access the web site. I guess it does have something to do with the filters. Maybe I can figure this out afterall. Still, advice would be appreciated.

I am looking to setup a secure vpn connection from my laptops to my office and use a RDP connection to a server. I have a ASA 5510. Which is better for a vpn ASA client or MS RRAS? Also,I want to do the following if possible: redirect the USB GPS to the RDP connection (it's a Delorme yellow brick usb gps). If this is not possible (I have not found a way to do it as of yet) then I will run the GPS on the laptop with the application that uses it. I was hoping though to run all of my applications through the RDP session to have minimal software on the laptop. Please let me know your opinions and ideas. Thank you in advance.

I have two subnets that I'd like to link. I have a subnet and a subnet.

In each subnet, I have a 2003 server running RRAS. The's server is office-srv01 ( and the's server is home-srv01 ( Office-srv01 is dialing a PPTP VPN connection to my router which runs DD-WRT. It is getting assigned the IP address The VPN is configured using a demand-dial interface set with a persistant connection.

What works right now: The VPN Connection: I can ping and remote desktop office-srv01 at

What doesn't work: I can't access anything on the office subnet nor can anything on the office subnet (besides office-srv01) access anything on the home subnet. In otherwords, no routing is taking place.

I setup a static route on my PC as follows: route add MASK

Tracing route to over a maximum of 30 hops

1 166 ms 1 ms 1 ms
2 reports: Destination host unreachable.

Trace complete.

What I can't figure out is why it's effectively ignoring my static route and going to the default gateway.

IP Routing on office-srv01 has been enabled, so it should route packets between the subnets (however, I don't appear to have a way to test that).

Right now, I don't have home-srv01 doing much of anything. It's... Read more

Here's the issue I am having.
My VPN is currently on a server 2003. I have installed it on my server 2008. I go into my sonicwall and changed the IP address from (old VPN server) to the new IP (new VPN server) and I am unable to connect to VPN.
However if I change the IP address of the new server to I can connect via VPN just fine.
I'm not sure if it matters but my old VPN server is also a backup domain controller and DNS, the new server is just a file share server and has IIS enabled for our antivirus.
I've looked at every setting I can think of and I even called Sonicwall and they state everything looks good in my settings. Any help would be greatly appreciated in this!

This was asked before by KlausdB:

"I have 4 x HDDs on SATA AHCI (Intel Controller) in Native Mode and 1 x ESATA on Win 7 Pro X64.
I noted that looking in Admin. Tools\Computer Management\Storage (as an example) the 1st HDD (Port 0 in the AHCI BIOS) is showing as "Disk 2" instead of my expectation of

"Disk 1".
Selecting the Drive's Properties correctly shows the "Location 0 (Channel 0, Target 0, Lun 0)".
I also note that the Disk Number allocation in Windows will change randomly after some reboots/startups - going anywhere from "Disk 1" to "Disk 4".  I can force/replicate this

behaviour by removing the ESATA drive.
Is this expected behaviour?
It doesn't appear to create any operating issues at this stage, however, is there a way I can force the Drive to always map to (eg) Device 0 --> Disk 1, Device 1 --> Disk 2,


 This was answered by Nicholas Li:

"As far as I know, how the disk is plugged physically and the order it is displayed are not related. For a simple example, if a drive is plugged to SATA interface 4 and it is the only disk, it will be displayed as Disk 0. If there is no related issue about
the disk order, I think we can safely ignore this."

I know i'm being dumb here but I can't get my very simple setup to work, and it's driving me crazy! Any help would be much appreciated.

I have a small static IP'd LAN network ( connected to a W2K3 box acting as all-purpose server. The server NIC on this LAN is IP The second, external facing NIC on the server is IP, on LAN The only other box on this LAN is a router/firewall, IP

The router/firewall is a linux box set up to forward (NAT) all traffic coming in from LAN to its external-facing NIC, the IP address of which is obtained by DHCP from another upstream router.

I can access the internet fine from the server, but the LAN clients on can't access it. The problem appears to be that the server is not forwarding traffic from one NIC to the other, ie from to, but I don't know why. I have RRAS installed, with LAN routing enabled. I have examined the routing tables and tried just about every combination I can think of but I can't do it.

I am not knowledgeable about routing but I feel that this should be a simple thing to accomplish. I have read what I can find online on RRAS but nothing seems to explain the simple (static?) routing that I need to set up. Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance.

I demand Microsoft to follow the issue causing persistent error 720 in PPPoE connections irreparable without rebooting the machine, what is critical not to be inevitable in certain circumstances like in our company, where Microsoft Windows product
is used in a way it needs stable uptime and programs calculations running 24/7.

The sympthoms:
- Windows 8.1 Pro
- PPPoE connection established once fresh boot
- 2 out of 3 times the PPPoE connection lost or disconnected manually, the bug appears.
- Then trying to connect to the network causes error 720 and has no success ever until reboot

Tried repair attempts:
- Network Diaglostics / Network card reset / reconnecting the cable physically / turning on-off the network card and WAN miniports except for IP miniport why see below
- Reinstalling/updating the network card drivers, tried several different versions old from 2013 to newest
- Reset/reinstall netsh states, protocols, interfaces, winsock and firewall
- Uninstalling/reinstalling WAN miniports through netcfg and even attempt through devcon
- Wokring in clean startup
- SFC /scannow
- Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
- Putting the same connection on another Windows 8.1 installation

The bug appears when the PPPoE connection is disconnected by any means. I am sure about the exact time of this happening. There is no messages or logged events on that moment, but I know it exists: since if I cancel the connection not established

Hey All,
Since PPTP has been sunset from OS X Sierra (many of our end users have Macs) they're unable to VPN into the office.

Yes, I know PPTP is an obsolete connection and has its vulnerabilities, so I'd like to move away from it to an SSL version. However, SSTP, to my understanding is not supported in OS X. So what is the best solution for Mac users connecting into a Windows based VPN?

I have three SATA hard drives :
Main system/boot drive , WD Caviar Black 1 TB, connected to the SATA 0 port
A backup drive, identical WD Caviar Black 1 TB, connected to the SATA 1 port
Another dirve, Hitachi 1 TB, connected to the SATA 2 port
When I installed Win 7, only the main drive was connected... and it remains the only drive with active/system/boot partitions.

All three drives reporr correctly in the BIOS, and in the right order, but why is it that only one of the drive (the one on SATA port 1) has a "SATA:" prefix and the others have a "HDD:" prefix ?

Why is it that the assignment of Disk #0, 1, 2 ( as seen in Disk Maanger or DiskPart) does not seem to have nay rhyme or reason?

I would have expected:

- the hardrive connected to SATA port O, to be assigned as Disk 0
- the hardrive connected to SATA port 1, to be assigned as Disk 1
- the hardrive connected to SATA port 2, to be assigned as Disk 2

but instead, I have:

- the hardrive connected to SATA port 2, is assigned as Disk 0
- the hardrive connected to SATA port 0, is assigned as Disk 1
- the hardrive connected to SATA port 1, is assigned as Disk 2

Just curious why that is.

I am assuming there is no way to chagne this. Its not something I would dream of reinstalling Windows 7 to correct ( even if it did correct it).

I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to deny RRAS servers from pulling DHCP addresses from a DHCP server?

My scenario is that I have no control over the RRAS servers, but they are also not using RRAS for remote access. The trouble is that the RRAS servers are acquiring addresses to be distributed to remote access users.

Is it possible to deny the RRAS servers from acquiring addresses from the DHCP server? If so, How?

Hello and thanks in advance for any help.

I have a small office network with only a couple servers, and even fewer workstations. We have WiFi and cabled Ethernet, and are running a Verizon Fios internet connection. I have setup a RRAS (routing and remote access) server, and established the VPN.

I can connect to the VPN with no errors or problems via the internal network. When I attempt to connect to the VPN via an internet connection it fails with error 691.

I can see the traffic via the router logs. I can also see errors in the RRAS servers event viewer, so I know that the connection is being made, but for some reason authentication is failing.

All the settings are the same for both connections, and I am using the same user name and password for both connections as well.

How can the authentication fail connecting to the same VPN, using the same method, just having the data go two different directions? PLEASE HELP!

thanks again.

Hi, I am trying to make a comparison against a set of data and rank them accordingly. The data can comprise up to 150 rows.

I compare data in column 1, get the ranking from there and if there is a tie for certain rows, I compare data on column 2 only for the rows that are tied. This is repeated until there is no more tied data or until all the columns have been exhausted.

I have attached the sample data and also the expected answer for easy reference. Thank you in advance to anyone who can help with this.

A:Ranking a set of numbers

You didn't said about the order of the ranking should it be upward or downward?
Also I'm not sure I understood the process, cause the way I understood it, the ranking should be a little bit different?
Do you just wanna the ranks or you wanna to sort the data too?

I have a form where two languages be entered at the same time, I have got the words and text entered in english and arabic , but when it comes to numbers and dates , it just stays as english . I tried through the control panel and change the neccassary but still the numbers stays english. If I completely in the control panel changed to arabic, all the english date and numbers are in arabic.

Is there a way that when pressing the ALT SHIFT the numerical also change to arabic ( text is fine in arabic ).

A:Arabic numbers

First, what program are you using?

it happens when you dont have an arabic font installed and selected as your text style. For example, if your default font is Times and you switch to arabic keyboard, it will let you type arabic but won't type the arabic numerals.

if you are typing in word, try to change over to an arabic font (not Adobe Arabic).

P.S. you will be able to type english numbers when you switch the keyboard to english and your font is an arabic font.

“A+ Certification for Dummies” describes the Pentium processor as having “a 32-bit address bus, 32 bit registers, and a 64 bit data bus. 7 pages later, it describes the Itanium as Intel’s “first 64-bit processor. “ I checked with an IT associate of mine, and he said the processor’s size refers to the address bus.” PC Guide” says it refers to the register size within the CPU. The article went on to say “every processor introduced in the last decade, from the earliest 386SX to the latest Pentium II or K6, is a 32 bit processor, based on this definition.” I know I’m ignorant, but I’m trying to understand.

Came home today and computer wouldn't type numbers. Num lock was on but turning off didn't help.

Kid had been playing games today.

Searched online and microsoft support had this recommendation for XP:

• Turn off the MouseKeys accessibility feature. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, click Run, type access.cpl in the Open box, and then click OK.
2. Click the Mouse tab, and then click to clear the Use MouseKeys check box.
3. Click OK.

I followed those instructions, rebooted and now i can type the numbers 5 and 6 but not seven or any other numbers. I do type a domain containing 5 and 6 from time to time and it will be in my cache so maybe that's why i can type these numbers only.

Any advice on how to cure this?

Well, the answer to your question is YES, but what you are doing is illegal, so I won&#8217;t be able to help you. Besides that, if you enter the number and it does take it, you&#8217;ll have to ACTIVATE it and that should fail because the machine is already activated on the Dell system.
