A. It you are using Point-to-Point Protocol and wish to debug its possible to enable logging as follows:

To enable logging on a server box:

  1. Start the Routing and Remote Access Services (RRAS) tool in Microsoft Management Console (MMC).
  2. In the left pane, right-click the RRAS server for which you want to enable logging, and then click Properties.
  3. Click the Event Logging tab.
  4. Click to select the Enable Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) logging check box.

On the Windows 2000 Professional machine:

  1. Open a command prompt window on the RRAS server for which you want to enable logging.
  2. Type the following command, pressing ENTER after each command:
    netsh 
    ras 
    set tracing PPP enable 

All PPP activity to the Ppp/log file in the %systemroot%\tracing\ folder. This uses quite a lot of resource so make sure you disable once you have logged the required data.

  1. Open a command prompt window on the RRAS server for which you want to disable logging.
  2. Type the following command, pressing ENTER after each command:
    netsh 
    ras 
    set tracing PPP disabled

This can also be set via the registry:

  1. Start the registry editor (Regedit.exe)
  2. Move to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Tracing\PPP
  3. Set EnableConsoleTracing (for Win2k Server) or EnableFileTracing (for Win2k Prof) to 1
  4. Close the registry editor
