The Routing and Remote Access Service has options for up to 27 different types of logging or "tracing" that can be enabled through the registry. Output can be to a file or to the console. The log files will be located in the <%Systemroot%>\Tracing directory.
To enable tracing, perform the following steps:
The Subkeys that may be traced are:
IPRIP2 IPRouterManager MIB-II Subagent MIB-II Utility OSPF OSPFMIB PPP RADIUS (NOTE: This key will only exist if your RRAS Server is configured for RADIUS authentication.) RASADHLP RASAPI32 RASCHAP RASCPL RASDLG RASIPCP RASIPHLP RASMAN RASMON RASSCRIPT Router IPBOOTP IPX Traffic Filter Logging IPXCP IPXRIP IPXRouterManager IPXSAP IPXWAN RASAUTO RASNBFCP
The components that are actually traced depend on what protocols and services are installed on the computer. Double-click the value to bring up the DWORD Editor so the value can be changed.
