A downside to RAS / RRAS is a lack of management tools. NTP RAS Manager
  • Establishes and automatically enforces a dial-in connection management policy
  • Idles out inactive remote sessions
  • Controls the length of RAS sessions
  • Allows or denies RAS server access
  • Restricts concurrent sessions
  • Limits RAS access to specific servers
  • Specifies network "peak" and "off-hour" time limits
  • Creates custom time remaining messages
  • Supports both RAS and RRAS
  • Generates RAS usage information for capacity planning or your corporate charge back system
  • Gathers statistics by user, port, RAS server, date, time of day, and more
This is a commerical product to fill a real gap in RAS / RRAS.

Microsoft has released TraceEnable which

  • Enable or disable RAS/RADIUS tracing without using Regedt32.exe or Regedit.exe.
  • Scan the component-related subkeys in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Tracing and modify the following entries without using a registry editor:
    • EnableConsoleTracing
    • EnableFileTracing
    • MaxFileSize
