How do I restart "Custom Config" in Role "Access Services" (Server 2008) as I forgot to add NAT

On Server 2008 - I needed to setup RRAS and chose "custom config" and didn't select NAT.
I find I need it and I can't get back to change my selection.
Either a way to restrt the custom config or a way to add the NAT would fix my problem.
I uninstalled everything (GUI & Command line) but I still don't get the option.
Any suggestions appreciated & TIA

Install that Role again if you removed it. Open RRAS console and expand your server name the go to IPv4 node and click on General right mouse button, choose "New Routing Protocol" and simply select "NAT" :)

Hope it helps

Hi
Sadly, this is not there for me to select. The right click gives me one entry that says "Help"

It seems that the "Custom Config" is a one time option and it takes things away from the system and they are just not there to be found.

I've removed and reinstalled RRAS with lucky reboots, but I don't know how to go back to this "First Time" option and undo my stupidity. I've googled and can't see a reference to others who have had this problem (yet), but I'm sure I'm not the first!   I even searched around in the registry a bit looking for a "First Time" boolean that I can reset and I assume this is the answer, but finding it is the challenge.

If I have to, It's a re-install, but that's my "LAST" option.

Regards
JJ

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

You are my hero.
I kept going back to the Server manager to uninstall and re-install which took ages and didn't work. Never occured to me to try what you suggested - obviously :(<

MANY Thanks for your outstanding efforts.
I joined EE in 1999 but haven't used it for years, but I'm a fan again.

Warmest Regards
