hi,
i have Windows server2008 standard, 2x NIC (one of them disabled), server is single DC in network.
I want to configure RRAS for incoming VPN connections , PPTP, and problem is that i have only RDP acess, no keyboard,mouse,monitor.
My question - after configuring RRAS will i be able to access it via RDP and is it going disable/enable NIC ???
If possible , it will be done in work hours when users access theris shared folders and documents!

Configuring RRAS shouldn't change your nic config in my experience.

I'm guessing your only using RDP for yourself as admin function on this machine? If so RRAS and RDP should be able to both exist just fine. Just make sure the firewall is setup to let RDP port through.

I would suggest making a backup/restore point and doing everything after hours. Nothing worse than unhappy users during hours because something unexpected happened.

You should not lose conectivity or the ability to remote manage the server. As always err on the side of caution, but you should be fine.
