Server 2008 R2 routing and remote access causing server to go offline


OK here is my set up:

server1 - Server 2008 R2 running as DC & DNS server - Routing and remote access installed and configured as a remote access server only for PPTP VPN only

server2 - Server 2008 R2 running as DC & DNS server - If I add the role Network policy & access services then select remote access only when I enable the role my server goes off line completely until I stop the routing & remote access service.

I have removed the role from server 2 but even with the role removed if I enable routing and remote access service the server goes off line completely. What am I doing wrong here?

Hi Iruiz52

I had a look where you said to look and there was a lot of filters in there which I think may have existed from an earlier install when I inadvertantly selected routing as well as remote access. Hopefully by removing these this will solve my issue so thanks for pointing me in the right direction, I will be carrying out this work on Weds evening so will accept your answer if this works ok.

Thanks very much, all working OK now. As per my original reply the filters were just removed so I didn't follow your suggestion to the T but you helped point me in the right direction thanks
