Monitor the Routing and Remote Access service

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

To monitor the Routing and Remote Access service

  1. Open Routing and Remote Access.

  2. In the console tree, double-click Routing and Remote Access, and then click Server Status.


  • To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators group. As a security best practice, consider using the Run As command rather than logging on with administrative credentials. If you have logged on with administrative credentials, you can also open Routing and Remote Access by clicking Start, clicking Control Panel, double-clicking Administrative Tools, and then double-clicking Routing and Remote Access. For more information, see Default local groups, Default groups, and Using Run as.

  • The Routing and Remote Access window shows the server name, the state of the Routing and Remote Access service (started or stopped), the total ports on the server, the ports in use, and the amount of time that the server has been up since the Routing and Remote Access service was last started.

Information about functional differences

  • Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
