SUMMARY

An Internet Protocol (IP) routing protocol such as Routing Information Protocol (RIP) or OSPF cannot be completely removed from Routing and Remote Access Service using the Graphical User Interface Routing and Remote Access Service Administrator (Mpradmin.exe). However, Routing and Remote Access Service Administrator can be used to disable the protocol. To completely remove the interface, the command-line interface Routemon.exe must be used. Both options are discussed below.

MORE INFORMATION

Disabling a Protocol Using the Graphical User Interface Mpradmin.exe

To effectively disable a routing protocol, you remove all interfaces from it. If this is done, the routing protocol is still installed but does not function. To remove interfaces from a routing protocol, click the routing protocol in the left pane of the Routing and Remote Access Service Admin. window. Then right-click the interface in the right pane of the window, and click Remove Interface.

Removing a Protocol Using the Command-Line Interface Routmon.exe

If you prefer to entirely remove the routing protocol from Routing and RAS Admin, you can use the following command:

ROUTEMON IP DELETE PROTOCOL PROTO= { RIP | OSPF | BOOTP }


For example, if you wanted to remove OSPF, the command would be:

ROUTEMON IP DELETE PROTOCOL PROTO= OSPF


When you enter the command, there must be a space between PROTO= and the routing protocol you choose to remove. After removing the protocol using the command-line interface, the graphical interface will not reflect the change until Mpradmin.exe is closed and restarted.
