Enable RRAS

I have windows 2008 server that has only one physical NIC.
I am planning to install DHCP server on it and create super scopes for different subnets, I don't have a physical router, I thought I just can enable RRAS on it, but I am not sure with 1 physical NIC if it will work.
Any work around?

Thanks

Well, I know you need at least 2 adapters to configure RRAS (at least that's how it is in Windows 2003) otherwise it gives you an error. A work around for that would be to install a loopback adapter.

I'm not sure if it will work with 1 physical and 1 loopback adapter for 4 subnets, you can certainly try it though.

Can I give the loopback adapter and IP address for instance 10.10.10.10?
if the physical NIC is a Gig Nic, would the loopback also be a Gig or slower?

You don't actually use the loopback adapter. It's just added so RRAS see's a second NIC and continues with the configuration. You would have to assign multiple IP addresses to your physical NIC.

I'm not even sure this will all work, I'm just giving you i am just giving you some ideas here and you'll have to try them. Typically you would have 4 NIC's.

I know tha you can multiple IPs even if you have one physical nic.
I don't if the IPs you add are in 2 different subnets will be routed by RRAS.
