Hi. We have a server 2008 standard box that is the DHCP server.  I noticed today there are entries in the DHCP leases  that show the server name and then an IP address assigned to it. The type is listed as 'RAS'. Is this remote access connections that are occurring?

If you have RRAS configured is grabs 10 addresses from DHCP to reserve for use for RAS clients.
