IAS Log Viewer - How to set up the IAS log file on Windows 2000 Server

The properties of the IAS log file must be configured first:

  • Run the IAS management console
  • Select Remote Access Logging
  • Right-click Local File
  • Select the Local File tab in the Local File Properties dialog box.
    You can use this tab to change the properties of the IAS log file.
    Log file format - we recommend the IAS Format. It logs more information.
    New log time period - any option. We recommend "Unlimited file size" for small or medium companies.
    Log file directory - any option. We recommend the default value.

You can change any of these settings any way you like. IAS Log Viewer can work with any combination of those settings.

You should configure the events the IAS service logs in the next step:

  • Run the IAS management console
  • Select Remote Access Logging
  • Right-click Local File
  • Select the Settings tab in the Local File Properties dialog box.
    Two types of events must be logged for complete information about connections:
    Accounting request events.
    Authentication request events.
    You should select both options as shown in the screenshot below.

These are all settings necessary to get a good IAS log in the IAS service. No need to restart the IAS service. Changes are applied immediately.

Now you should configure clients of the IAS server.

It is a standard RRAS in our example. You should do the following:

  • Run the rras management console
  • Right-click the rras server
  • Select the rras server properties
  • Select the Security tab in the rras server properties
  • Select our IAS server as Authentication provider
  • Select our IAS server as Accounting provider
  • Restart the RRAS service if the RRAS management console offers it

That's all. Now you can run IAS Log Viewer and look at the result. All new connections should have the actual start and stop times.
