Troubleshooting VPN/PPP problem by using the log of VPN server

MS windows event viewer and log are very useful tools in troubleshooting VPN/PPP. If you have a difficulty to access the VPN/RAS server, you may go to the event viewer of the VPN/RAS server to check any errors. Alternatively, you can go to %SystemRoot%\system32\LogFiles to view any possible causes. To enable the PPP log on w2k server, go to Routing and Remote Access Services (RRAS)>properties>Event Logging, Check the Enable Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) logging box.

To enabling PPP Logging on a Computer Running Windows 2000 Professional Using Netsh.exe. To do this, at command prompt, type

netsh
ras
set tracing PPP enable

NOTE: The Netsh.exe utility is the only option to enable PPP logging in Win 2000 Pro. After you enable logging, the computer logs all PPP activity to the xxx.log file in the %SystemRoot%\LogFiles. Since PPP logging uses system resources and hard disk space, you should turn off it when you are finished troubleshooting.
