The Routing and Remote Access service encountered an error in assigning an IP address to dial-in clients during IP Control Protocol (IPCP) negotiation.



1.     The DHCP server couldn’t be contacted.

2.     The RRAS service IP address pool ran out of addresses.



1.     Verify the network connection between the RRAS server and DHCP server.

2.     Verify whether the IP address pool on the RRAS server is out of addresses and determine if you need to add more addresses to the pool.


Sample Event

Sample Event #2: A connection has been established on port %1 using interface %2, but the remote side got no IP address.
Sample Event #3: No IP address is available to hand out to the dial-in client.
