RRaS tells me to delete something that's not there???

    General discussion

  • Ok, I'm quite new at RRaS, but pretty experienced with the Windows Server platform. I installed RRaS and misconfigured it. After removing and reinstalling the damned thing, every time I right click the role and click Enable RRaS and configure, it says "Incoming Connections are enabled. To use RRaS, you must first open Network Connections and delete Incoming Connections." However, when I open up Network Connections, INCOMING CONNECTIONS IS NOT THERE!!!! It doesn't show up ANYWHERE!! netsh interface ipv4 show interfaces   doesn't show it. I can't figure out why it is doing this and I need it to be fixed ASAP.

    Any help appreciated,

  • Sounds like you or someone else in the past has created an inbound connection, such as for VPN or some sort of dialin access, but it's now hidden.

    When looking at Network Connections, do you have under Folder View, show hidden connections set? You may have to set that in Control Panel, Folder Options.

    What shows up in Device Manager if also opt to show hidden devices?

  • Hi CBiss,

    Thanks for posting here.

    In addition, did we restart this server after we removed RRAS from server when attempted to reinstall it ?
