RAS IP Addresses
Posted on 2005-04-26
Can anyone tell me how I can stop my DHCP server from assigning RAS IP addresses to clients.
The server is running Routing and Remote Access and is configured using NAT to the clients. It is not needed (and I thought) not configured as a remote access server, however I can still get external access for myself through a remote desktop connection.
I cannot work out where it is specified that the DHCP server needs to assign an address listed in the unique identity as RAS (has a little phone by the icon) as well as a normal IP address from inside the network. It isn't a complex scope, using the 10.0.0.0 range with two subnets.
The problem is that these RAS addresses are eating up available IP's as each client is effectively getting two, one RAS and one normal IP address. Is this a client configuration, a DHCP setting or a RAS setting ?
Yesterday I reconfigured RRAS again, just to make sure that it was not configured as a remote access server. Thought I had cracked it and then sure enough, those little telephone icons started popping up in the lease settings and the amount of available IP's was considerably reduced.
I have trawled the expected places, especially Technet with no further progress.
Very confused and need to get this one sorted ????
