Routing And Remote Access Windows 2000 Server and One NIC.

Posted on 2004-03-21
Last Modified: 2010-04-13
I only have one NIC on my server and I setup Routing and Remote Access. I choose VPN setup using the wizard. It would not let me choose my NIC card so I choose no connection. I then added the servers IP to the DHCP relay agent.

I had this problem once before but I do not remeber what setting needed to be changed. Any help would be appreciated.

Perhaps using a loopback adapter?

Hmm - I'd like to say my post resolved this one - but would rather hear confirmation from the author...this is what loopback adapters are for...

What I did was cancel the wizard and configure it manually. It recommends having two connections however it will still work with one.
