    Can someone please let me know if i am setting things up correctly here? Have two servers with RRAS set up (also LAN and demand dial enabled); backup and primary. My configuration is as follows:

    Primary Server:
    demand dial interface = backup
    user credentials = primary
    static route = IP of backup network

    Backup Server:
    demand dial interface = primary
    user credentials = backup
    static route = IP of primary netwok

    Sitting this exam in a week and need to confirm this. Have a limited lab to play about with a home so jus trying to ensure i correctly configured this. The problem is that when i right click on the either interface to connect to the other i always get the following error:

    error: username and/or password is incorrect in the domain
    I thought this was set up correctly. Jus using it to connect over a VPN

    Also i read on the help that after you configure demand dialing you must also create the accounts in active directory?why would this be the case if they have already been created. Any help appreciated

    Have you set the user account or remote access policy, to allow remote access?

    Not sure why you are getting that error Ally but you could try different authentication protocols PAP/CHAP or maybe even SLIP rather than PPP just as a troubleshooting idea. In other words make the connection as basic as possible and vamp up the security once connectivity is established.

    I am sure you don't need to set up the user account if one already exists.
