How does RAS assign IP
settings to a RAS Client?
When Remote Access Service
(RAS) is setup to use DHCP or IP Static Pool to assign IP address to a RAS
client, only the IP address from the DHCP lease is passed to the RAS client.
Other options such as Default, DNS, and WINS in the DHCP scope are not.
Instead, the above mentioned options are assigned directly from the RAS
server's settings. If a RAS server has WINS or DNS entries, these entries
are passed to the client.
Whet troubleshooting VPN or
RAS name resolution issue, please check the following settings.
- It is not recommended to setup
VPN server using static IP.
- Make sure you “Enable broadcast
name resolution” for assigning DNS and WINS to the dial in client.
- If you have two or more NICs in
the VPN server, select correct adapter for dial in instead of using “Allow
RAS to select adapter:.
