RRAS provides multiprotocol LAN-to-LAN, LAN-to-WAN, virtual private network (VPN), and network address translation (NAT) routing services. RRAS is intended for use by system administrators who are already familiar with routing protocols and services.

Membership in the local Administrators group, or equivalent, is the minimum required to complete this procedure.

To enable LAN and WAN routing
  1. Open the RRAS MMC Snap-in.

  2. Right-click the server name for which you want to enable routing, and then click Properties. If you are using Server Manager, right-click Routing and Remote Access, and then click Properties.

  3. On the General tab, select the IPv4 Router or IPv6 Router check boxes, and then under each one that you enable, do one of the following:

    • To enable only LAN routing without support for demand-dial connections, click Local area network (LAN) routing only.

    • To enable both LAN routing and WAN routing by using demand-dial connections, click LAN and demand-dial routing.

  4. Click OK to save your changes.

  5. If you are prompted to restart RRAS, click Yes. The service stops and automatically restarts.
