Solved Sever 2008 multiple IP address issues--Please help

June 8, 2012 at 10:18:17
Specs: Windows 7
I've recently installed server 2008 and I keep running into the remote desktop issue. Well, the remote desktop works until I installed "Routing and Remote Access" features. No matter what I do, I can't seem to remote desktop into the server. One thing I've notice was that the server seems to have multiple IP address when I access the router and you can see the image here.

http://imageshack.us/f/801/ipissue....

So the image shows Win2K8 with the IP address of : 192.168.0.104, 192.168.0.103, 192.168.0.106, 192.168.0.107...so on.

However, I choose a static IP of 192.168.0.200 and that worked fine until I Installed the Routing and Remote Access.

Any help is much appreciated; please go easy on the technical term, I am a high school freshman and I do not have extreme experience with this platform. However, I do know the basics.

can't ping means the firewall is blocking icmp. configure it not to do so.
bring up mmc
add the remote desktop for the server
use the static ip of the lan

confirm the rdp service is running on the server

connect. what is the error?

You probably only need a static IP on the server & port forwarding on the router. What error are you getting after you installed RRAS?

Thanks for guapo, but I do not have any error regarding the RRAS; the VPN seems to work fine, however, I can't remote desktop anymore from my client computer. I did set up a static IP on the network adapter, but on the router it shows multiple IP which is probably causing the remote desktop issue. Well, here is the remote desktop error:

Remote Desktop can't connect to the remote computer for one of these reasons:
1) Remote access to the server is not enabled
2) The remote computer is turned off
3) The remote computer is not available on the network

If RRAS is enaged its giving out ips for the vpn access. I suspect this is what your router is logging. It's of no concern.

It is unclear from your post if you are RDPing in locally or via the internet. I suspect locally since you don't mention port forwarding.

Are you rdping to the static ip of the server wan port or the static ip of the servers lan port?

@Wanderer

Thanks for replying, I set the static IP of 192.168.0.200 for my server, but when I try to remote desktop it within lan, I get the above error. I try to ping it, it doesn't work either. Everything worked until I installed Routing and Remote access.

both the wan and lan on the server should be static ips.
you should try the lan ip when accessing via the lan.

@wanderer

I am using the static lan IP, still getting the above error and can't even ping the server using static IP as well.
