Weird RRAS Issue

By dalehobbs ·
I have a Windows 2003 server that is running RRAS and acting as a VPN server. Everything works fine and I can connect remotely with no issues. However, when I disconnect my VPN session, if I wait about 10 - 15 minutes and try to connect again I get the error 678 stating that the remote server is not responding. If I go to the server there are no active or hung sessions and no errors logged. If I restart the RRAS service I can connect again but once I disconnect after about 10 - 15 mins the cycle starts all over again. Has anyone else had this issue?

hello...I wonder how long this post has been sitting here...I'm experiencing the same problem (it would seem). I think I've narrowed the issue to SP1 for 2003 server. The first 2003 VPN server I built, I installed SP1 from the get-go, and I couldn't explain why I had to go into RRAS and restart the service all the time...couldn't explain it. So, growing ever more frustrated with the problem, I rebuilt the server from scratch, thinking maybe I had misinstalled something. This second time, I did not install SP1. the RRAS service worked flawlessly...until one day the server began spontaneously rebooting itself every 1 minutes or so on an lsass.exe error. I immediately thought "sasser", and began scanning. never found any traces of the sasser, however the symptoms were too similar to what I had read/heard sasser did. Anyway, rebooting every 15 minutes was unacceptable, so I rebuilt the server a 3rd time. this time, with SP1 again (thinking that the LSASS.exe error may have been related to missing an update or security change that was included with SP1, and that maybe still my original install that included SP1 was somehow a problem, and that this time, it would be ok... so now I have the third installation of 2003 server running RRAS. this time, it has sp1, and now is rejecting VPN connections after a period of time again... as I typed this, I've removed SP1, from the running server (trying to avoid rebuilding it...again... so we'll see. Please tell me you've figured out what the problem is???
