Microsoft ended support for Windows Server 2003 on July 14, 2015. This change has affected your software updates and security options. Learn what this means for you and how to stay protected.

INTRODUCTION
This article describes how to disable the H.323 functionality in the Routing and Remote Access service if that service is configured to use the network address translation (NAT) routing protocol. By default, the H.323 component is enabled if you configure the Routing and Remote Access service to use NAT in Microsoft Windows 2000. The procedures that are described in the "More Information" section also apply to Microsoft Windows Server 2003. However, in Windows Server 2003, the H323 component is disabled by default if you configure Routing and Remote Access to use NAT.

Important This procedure only modifies Routing and Remote Access if it is configured to use NAT. It does not disable H.323 functionality in the following components or programs:
  • Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)
  • Internet Connection Firewall (ICF)
  • Telephony API (TAPI)
  • NetMeeting
  • Other programs that use NetMeeting or H.323 TAPI functionality
