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.
To enable tracing, perform the following steps:
  1. Open the registry editor using Regedt32.exe.
  2. Go to the following key in the registry:

    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.
