Chapter 8.6. IP Routing > Demand-Dial Routing

Demand-Dial Routing

Demand-dial ports on a Windows 2000 router will automatically activate when necessary to forward IP addresses in the routing table. You create a demand-dial through the Demand-Dial Wizard or by activating Internet Connection Sharing. Right clicking on the Routing Interfaces entry in RRAS activates the wizard. The wizard will walk you through the following steps to create the demand-dial interface:

  1. Assign a name to the demand-dial port, for example, RemoteLink. Note: This name is used on a later page as the username for the remote router to access this side of the connection, so abide by normal user naming rules.

  2. Select whether the connection will be over a modem or VPN. This choice will affect the next several pages of the wizard.

  3. Choose the modem to be used for dialing out or choose what type of VPN to create.

  4. Specify the phone number to be dialed or the address of the VPN connection.

  5. Select checkboxes to control routing. Checkboxes include support for IP routing, IPX routing, dial-out user settings, support for plain text password, and use of a dial-out script. Selection of these checkboxes will control additional pages presented by the wizard.

  6. Choose or edit an existing script to be used for connecting to the remote router.

  7. Specify a password to be used by the remote router to connect to this Windows 2000 router. The remote router will use the username we assigned in step 1 (in our example, it was RemoteLink).

  8. Specify the userid, domain, and password for the Windows 2000 router to use to connect to the remote router.
