Windows 2008 RRAS

I am trying to setup a Windows Server as a Router.

Here is my scenario.

Created a RRAS server with let say 5 interfaces. (24), (24), (24), (24), (24).

Installed RIP on the RRAS server; and installed all 5 interfaces.  Ping each interface from the RRAS Server which was successful.

So when went to each interface and tried to ping the RRAS server and was successful.

But was not able to ping each other interface from each individual interface.  Example while on interface could not ping;

 Can someone explain how to fix this issue?

"went to each interface and tired to ping" - does that mean you pinged from a device connected to that particular interface?
Any reason why you want to use RIP? I cannot recommend it, unless your routes are "on demand".
Instead, use the RRAS as default gateway for all devices but the Internet router, and  forward unknown traffic to that router.

No it does not mean that; which you are correct.  So on interface (HostServer  & not RRAS Sever) I cannot ping to  This is the task I trying to accomplish with RRAS.   This is a simulation lab that I am performing these.  My Goal is to try to build a multisite & multi-forest infrastructure; but before  I am able to do it I must have the proper routing table in place to peform this.   Remember using VMware workstation where I can setup a router and install numerous of interfaces.  I choose Windows RRAS because seems the most simplistic way to go.

So I would like to connect to site 1 ( to site 2 (  having RRAS server in the middle to connect both interfaces.  I do I go by doing this
Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

As said, use the RRAS as default gateway, and allow it to decide where traffic flows (which should go without any further config).
Of course make sure to have Router role active in RRAS.

We can work on it further; but in the middle of a major project now
