How about Routing and Remote Access for Windows 10? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Given that Windows 10 has Hyper-V how about enabling the full Routing and Remote Access Role for Windows 10.  While Hyper-V is great there are a lot of development scenarios where having a real network router is essential.

    While you can run a Hyper-V client as a router this is really seem quite silly.  If you run Windows Server as you can have Routing and Remote Access no problem.

    The built in bridging and connection sharing is just not up to the task. It has to many limitations for real testing. Having it available in Windows 10 would be one of the best things you could do for hyper-v.

    What do you think Microsoft?

    Thanks

  •  Most unlikely, I would say. RRAS has always been server OS only and don't see that changing.
