SUMMARY

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.

MORE INFORMATION

To enable tracing, perform the following steps:
  1. Open the registry editor using Regedt32.exe.
  2. Go to the following key in the registry:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Traci


    The value EnableConsoleTracing (REG_DWORD) either permits or denies console tracing for all subkeys. 0 is off and 1 is on.
Console or File Tracing is then individually turned on or off for each of the 27 subkeys. These subkeys under the Tracing key each have a value for EnableConsoleTracing:REG_DWORD: and EnableFileTracing:REG_DWORD. File tracing will begin as soon as you edit the EnableFileTracing keys; however, to begin console tracing you will need to stop and restart the RRAS service.

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.
