How to Disable Routing & Remote Access


Older versions of Microsoft Windows Server software relies on the Routing and Remote Access network tool to launch a range of services, including dial-up remote access, VPN remote access, IP routers, network address translators and demand-dial routers. If you want to change the network configuration or shut down these services on the Windows server, you must first disable the Routing and Remote Access tool.

  • Log into the Windows server with an administrator account. Launch the server's Administrative Tools utility.

  • Double-click the Routing and Remote Access icon to open the Routing and Remote Access configuration console.

  • Click the name of your server in the list displayed in the console. If the Routing and Remote Access services are enabled for your server, you should see a green up-arrow next to the server icon.

  • Right-click the server icon and choose Disable Routing and Remote Access from the menu.

  • Click Yes in the dialog box to confirm that you want to shut down the service. After shutting down Routing and Remote Access, you will be able to reconfigure your settings, if necessary.
