RRAS and RWW go down after reboot
Posted on 2008-11-03
I have a buggy SBS 2003 server that i took over administration for and It sometimes hangs and reboots .. after the server reboots everything starts working properly again.
except RRAS and RWW ... at the moment RRAS is more critical for me as the company president is on the road alot and needs to vpn in.
my server just rebooted and I am afraid i have the same problem again ... how do i verify RRAS is working and how can i fix it is not ?
the way i can immediately tell that VPN is down .. is when i open the task manager on the network tab .. it shows up as a separate interface when it is up and running and is completely missing when it is not there.
when i goto administrative tools -> routing and remote access .. the service is running but the ports are all inactive (about 5 of them)
another thing that i have noticed which has changed is the pictur below .. there was an ip address in the empty boxes
I am absolutely positive that this issue is not the firewall side because i verified all the ports are being forwarded correctly and vpn was working fine before the server reboot and nothing has been changed on the firewall
help please ??
