How does RRAS server track IP addresses?


I've configured my 2003 server as a RRAS server.  All my internal machines access the internet through it only through static IP addresses.  I've set up DHCP through RRAS.

My question is, where can you view the IP addresses, if any, that are handed out by the server when your internal machines are set to auto instead of static? So far, none of my workstations can pick up an IP from this server.

I've enabled other 2003 servers on my network in the past as DHCP servers and through "Administrative tools", "DHCP", I could see every address and which machine got it.

How does this work when the RRAS server is handling DHCP???

really stumped....

if you check the clients(#) section, check the properties and it will show you the ip address that it was assigned.

where do I find the "clients (#) section"?

start > admin tools > routing and remote access

expand your server and you will see 'remote access clients (#)' as an item on the tree.  click on that to list out the # of clients you have connected.  double click the client to see properties about that client.

Thanks WMIF,

Yeah, I always knew that was there but I've never been able to have a client actually pick up an IP from my RRAS server on it's own.  I've ended up assigning static IP's instead.  I guess my next question will be why my network clients are unable to get an IP from this machine.
