Re-create the default remote access policy

Updated: January 21, 2005

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

To re-create the default remote access policy

  1. Open Routing and Remote Access.

  2. In the console tree, right-click Remote Access Policies.


    • Routing and Remote Access/server name/Remote Access Policies

  3. Click New Remote Access Policy.

  4. In the New Remote Access Policy wizard, do the following:

    • Choose Set up a custom policy.

    • In Policy name, type a default name, and then click Next.

      When the Routing and Remote Access service is installed, the default remote access policies are Connections to Microsoft Routing and Remote Access server and Connections to other access servers. However, you are not required to use these names.

    • On the Policy Conditions page, click Add, click Day-and-Time-Restrictions, click Add, and configure the attribute to permit all times on all days. Click OK, and then click Next.

    • On the Permissions page, click Deny remote access permission, and then click Next.

    • On the Profile page, click Next. Do not make changes to the profile for this policy.

    • Click Finish.


  • To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators group. As a security best practice, consider using the Run As command rather than logging on with administrative credentials. If you have logged on with administrative credentials, you can also open Routing and Remote Access by clicking Start, clicking Control Panel, double-clicking Administrative Tools, and then double-clicking Routing and Remote Access. For more information, see Default local groups, Default groups, and Using Run as.

  • By following the steps in this procedure, you will re-create the policy conditions of the Connections to other access servers policy.

Information about functional differences

  • Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
