The Routing and Remote Access Service has options for up to 27 differenttypes 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 locatedin the <%Systemroot%>\Tracing directory.
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 ofthe 27 subkeys. These subkeys under the Tracing key each have a value forEnableConsoleTracing:REG_DWORD: and EnableFileTracing:REG_DWORD. Filetracing will begin as soon as you edit the EnableFileTracing keys; however,to begin console tracing you will need to stop and restart the RRASservice.
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 andservices are installed on the computer. Double-click the value to bring upthe DWORD Editor so the value can be changed.
