Im having a hell of a time setting up the Remote Acess Server within WinNT4.0, and could use some help deciphering error messages, as well as some general tips on things to do to get the RAS up and running.

The error which I am stuck with at this point is:

"Remote Acess Server specific error code 1066"

If someone could provide a solution to remove that error, as well as any other tips to get the RAS running, please post an answer.

I found the following reference for your error code 1066:

Microsoft Knowledge Base
Err Msg: Error Starting Remote Access Service on <Server_Name>
Last reviewed: June 3, 1997
Article ID: Q106204  
The information in this article applies to:
Microsoft Windows NT operating system version 3.1
Microsoft Windows NT Advanced Server version 3.1
Microsoft Windows NT Workstation versions 3.5, 3.51, and 4.0
Microsoft Windows NT Server versions 3.5, 3.51, and 4.0


SYMPTOMS
Remote Access Service (RAS) Administrator issues the following error message if your RAS configuration specifies Dial Out Only in the Network application in Control Panel:


   Error starting Remote Access Service on <Server_Name>. Check the
   Event log on <Server_Name> for details.

   Error 1066: The service has returned a service-specific error code.

The following events will be logged in the SYSTEM section of the Event Log:

   Event ID: 7024
   Source:  Service Control Manager
   Description:  The Remote Access Server service terminated with the
   following server-specific error: 1066.

   Event ID: 2008
   Source:  Remote Access Server
   Description:  The Remote Access Server is not configured to receive
   calls.

NOTE: This may also occur if the Serial ports are disabled in the computer’s BIOS


WORKAROUND
To correct the setup so you will no longer receive the above error message, do the following:


In the Control Panel window, choose the Network icon.

In the Installed Network Software box, select Remote Access Service.

In the Remote Access Setup dialog box, choose Configure, and then choose Configure again.

In the Port Usage box, make sure either the Receive Calls Only or the Dial Out And Receive Calls option box is selected.

Choose OK, shut down Windows NT, and restart.

MORE INFORMATION


Steps to Reproduce Behavior

In the Control Panel window, choose the Network icon.

In the Installed Network Software box, select Remote Access Service.

In the Remote Access Setup dialog box, choose Configure, and then choose Configure again.

In the Port Usage box, select the Dial Out Only option button.

Choose OK, shut down Windows NT, and then restart.

After logging back on to Windows NT, double-click the RAS Administrator utility.

From the Server menu, select Start Remote Access Service, select your server, and then choose OK.

The above error message will appear.

Im being told be other applications that a needed telephony resources is taken, but there are no other apps running (which I can see) that would be taking this resource.....yet another piece to the puzzle.

TO START THE REMOTE ACESS SERVER without the 1066 error message.

TRY THIS:

Check your serial device driver is started not not.
go /start/setting/control panel/devices.
find the serial device.

if startup setting is disable.
go /startup and select automatic.
and start the device.

if startup setting is automatic and not started.
and start the device.

You can restart the Remote Acess Server service  again.

If this will not work. You may have serial ports conflict or hardware problem.

Good Luck.

This is what I figured.  I was about to hook the RAS up to the backup server, and let folks connect in from there....mainly because I dont want to deal with the hardware conflicts right now.  Thanks for the info.
