Routing and Remote Access Config Disappeared?

    Question

  • Hi, we recently had an issue at work and I have to quickly prevent all staff from using the VPN on there Laptops, so I quickly logged onto the relevant server, opened up Routing and Remote Access, right clicked and selected All Tasks then Stop. This did the trick and I left it for a week. I came back to the server this morning to enable it and the config has now gone and it wants me to configure it again!!?? Is this normal?? It had taken me along time to configure this, does anyone know where this config file is kept on the server so I can restore it from a backup? Thanks in advance

  • That's expected if you disable and re-enable RRAS. To back up the current configuration, you could use netsh routing dump command

  • Thanks. So there's no folder location where the config is kept like when you create the dun file on the Windows Client end?

  • It's not a file system based config. You would need to run the netsh command to create a backup

  • You specify the file location and name when running netsh. You can use it afterwards to restore the configuration
