Server Properties - IPv4 Tab

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

 

Dialog box element Description

Enable IPv4 Forwarding

Specifies whether IP routing, the forwarding of IP packets from one routing interface to another, is enabled on this server. You must enable IP routing in order for LAN and demand-dial routing to occur. If you want IP-based remote access clients to access the entire network to which this server is attached, enable IP routing. If you want IP-based remote access clients to access this server only, disable IP routing.

Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)

Specifies that the server uses DHCP to obtain IP addresses assigned to TCP/IP-based remote access and demand-dial connections.

Static address pool

Specifies that the server uses a configured static pool of IP addresses for allocation to TCP/IP-based remote access and demand-dial connections.

Enable broadcast name resolution

Enables or disables the broadcast name resolution service. When enabled, this service allows remote access clients to resolve TCP/IP names on a single subnet LAN without the use of local Windows Internet Name Service (WINS) or Domain Name System (DNS) servers.

Adapter

Lists the available adapters. The selected adapter is used to obtain the IP addresses for allocation (if configured to use DHCP) and the IP addresses of DNS and WINS servers for assignment to remote access clients and demand-dial routers. By default, Allow RAS to select adapter is selected, which means that the server randomly selects an adapter when the Routing and Remote Access service is started.
