Dialog box element Description

Enable IPv6 Forwarding

Specifies whether this RRAS server routes Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) packets from one routing interface to another. You must enable IP routing in order for local area network (LAN) and demand-dial routing to occur. If you want IP-based remote access clients to access the entire network to which this server is attached, enable IP routing. If you want IP-based remote access clients to access this server only, you can disable IP routing.

Enable Default Route Advertisement

Specifies whether a default route is advertised on this server. A default route is a route for the zero-length prefix.

IPv6 prefix assignment

Type the IPv6 prefix that will be assigned to all remote access clients (for example, 2001:1234:5678:9ABC::).


Lists the available adapters. The selected adapter is used to obtain the IP addresses for allocation (if configured to use DHCP) and the IP addresses of DNS and WINS servers for assignment to remote access clients and demand-dial routers. By default, Allow RAS to select adapter is selected, which means that the server randomly selects an adapter when RRAS is started.
