When you configure a Microsoft Windows 2000 Server-based computer to accept incoming calls, you cannot configure the following redundancy features of TCP/IP:

Dead Gateway Detection

Accepting ICMP Redirects from Routers


This behavior occurs because the Windows 2000 Server operating system enables Routing and Remote Access components when you configure an incoming connection. Routing and Remote Access components on Windows 2000 Server allow only one route to the same destination.


To resolve this issue, install the RIP Listener (Silent RIP) component if the network uses Routing Information Protocol (RIP) routing protocols to provide the server with knowledge of redundant network paths. If Microsoft Windows CE synchronization is the reason you need the incoming connection, use ActiveSync 3.0. This version does not use incoming connections and does not exhibit this behavior.
