Updated: January 21, 2005

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

Netsh commands for remote access (ras)

You can administer remote access servers by typing commands at the command prompt for the Netsh ras context. By using the Netsh ras command prompt, you can administer servers more quickly over slow network connections, and you can create scripts that automate the administration of many servers.

For more information on Netsh, see Netsh overview and Enter a netsh context.

To view the command syntax, click a command:

help

Displays command-line help for commands you can use in the Netsh ras context.

Syntax

help

Parameters

none

Remarks
  • You can also display command-line help by typing any of the following at the command prompt for the Netsh ras context: ?, /?, or -?.

show_activeservers

Displays a list of remote access server advertisements.

Syntax

show activeservers

Parameters

none

show_client

Lists remote access clients connected to this server.

Syntax

show client

Parameters

none

dump

Displays the configuration of the remote access server in script form.

Syntax

dump

Parameters

none

show_tracing

Shows whether tracing is enabled for the specified component. Used without parameters, show tracing lists all installed components and whether tracing is enabled for each.

Syntax

show tracing [Component]

Parameters
Component
Specifies the component for which to display information.

set_tracing

Enables or disables tracing for the specified component.

Syntax

set tracing Component {enabled | disabled}

Parameters
Component
Required. Specifies the component for which you want to enable or disable tracing. Use * to specify all components.

{ enabled| disabled}
Required. Specifies whether to enable or disable tracing for the specified component.

Remarks
  • To see a list of all installed components, use the show tracing command without parameters.

Examples

To set tracing for the PPP component, type:

set tracing ppp enabled

show_authmode

Shows whether dial-up clients using certain types of devices should be authenticated.

Syntax

show authmode

Parameters

none

set_authmode

Specifies whether dial-up clients using certain types of devices should be authenticated.

Syntax

set authmode {standard | nodcc | bypass}

Parameters
{ standard| nodcc| bypass}
Required. Specifies whether dial-up clients using certain types of devices should be authenticated. The parameter standard specifies that clients using any type of device should be authenticated. The parameter nodcc specifies that clients using any type of device except a direct-connect device should be authenticated. The parameter bypass specifies that no clients should be authenticated.

add_authtype

Adds an authentication type to the list of types through which the remote access server should attempt to negotiate authentication.

Syntax

add authtype {pap | spap | md5chap | mschap | mschapv2 | eap}

Parameters
{ pap| spap| md5chap| mschap| mschapv2| eap}
Required. Specifies which authentication type to add to the list of types through which the remote access server should attempt to negotiate authentication. The pap parameter specifies that the remote access server should use the Password Authentication Protocol (plaintext).
