RAS hands out bad subnet mask & gateway

By leonard.cayman ·
Hi,
i have a NT server running RAS that is handing out good IP's but faulty subnet mask and default gateway. I have tried allocating a specified range of IP's- this works for the IP but not the rest. DHCP is the same thing. help please on getting all fields correct???

RAS hands out bad subnet mask & gateway

by jared In reply to RAS hands out bad subnet ...

Explain what you mean by "faulty" masks and gateways. Do you mean it gives out the wrong info for the subnet the client is apart of? Is the ip address in the same subnet as the gateway the client is getting?

EX: If the IP the client is gettingis 10.0.5.23 /24, the gateway should be somewhere in the 10.0.5.1-10.0.5.254 range...

By faulty mask & gateway- i mean we only have one default gateway-10.4.0.31 and one subnet mask-255.252.0.0- the RAS server does not give these values- something totally off the mark.
thanks,

This exact problem is occuring on our network. I have the RAS client set up to obtain an ip address when dialing in to the server. The connection is authenticated and the ip address is handed out from the scope pool. The only problem is that the mask and default gateway are incorrect. The DG is set to the same as the ip address. Example:

Scope hands out 192.168.1.100 - 192.168.1.250

RAS client ends up with:

IP Address: 192.168.1.101
Mask: 255.255.255.255
Gateway 192.168.1.101

Same thing here. I found some info at Microsoft Q160699 explaining that RAS doesn't hand out the gateway and subnet(or any other options)regardless of what is set in DHCP.

What errors are the RAS clients experiencing? Can't connect at all, can't see the local subnet, can't see other subnets, can't connect to exchange, can't get to internet?
Since the behavior is by design, there may be other steps needed to resolvea problem.
