I've got a SBS 2003 server that's started giving me problems recently. I can connect via PPTP VPN but always get a self-assigned address (169.x.x.x) until I restart RRAS from within the RRAS console. This started happening 1-2 weeks ago.
A few quick googles didn't yield much but did help me realise that something strange is going on - two processes are running on port 67 (DHCP) on the server (see below).
After I restart RRAS, the SVCHOST PID changes but still is running on port 67 concurrently with DHCP. Despite two processes listening on port 67, RRAS now gives PPTP clients a valid IP (10.x.x.x)
Any ideas on the cause and fix?
