Remote Access and Routing Services

To use a server as a router or to create a subnet, Routing and Remote Access [RRAS] feature of Windows server are very useful and helpful.

Create new subnet and make that subnet device accessed [RDP] by devices in the current network.

1. Hyperv with Static IP adapter in current network for Example
2. Create new subnet [] on Hyperv with the help of RRAS.
3. Create new Hyperv Virtual Switch with an internal network option.
4. Assign that Virtual Switch adapter to Guest VM on Hyperv.
5. Make sure the VM can connect to the internet.
6. Provide static IP for the Guest VM as
7. Make sure the current network device can remote into Guest VM.

• Hyperv needs at least two NIC adapters.

To install and configure this feature, please follow below steps:

Server Manager > Add Roles & Features > Select Remote Access 
Click Next > Next > Next > Select Routing > Go with all default selections and Direct Access will be automatically selected, Click Next > Install:
You don’t need to restart the server to make to fully functional.

Create HYPERV Virtual Switch:

Before we configure RRAS, set up HYPERV Virtual Switch and set up that Virtual Switch for new subnet []:

Hyperv > Virtual Switch Manager > New Virtual Network Switch > Internal > Create Virtual Switch:
Name the Virtual Switch > Select  Internal Network > Apply > OK
Go to Network & Sharing Center > Change Adapter Settings > Select the adapter created in Hyperv:
Configure RRAS:

Go to Start Menu and search for Routing and Remote Access and open it:
Right click on the server name and click Configure and Enable Routing and Remote Access.
Select NAT option:
Click Next > Choose first NIC which will provide the Internet Access. In this Scenario, a NIC with address.

Click Next > Choose second NIC which will be new subnet NIC. In this scenario, a NIC with [Virtual Hyperv Adapter].

Click Next > Go with Enable Basic Name and Address services option > Click Next > Finish. Once the wizard finishes, it will set up the server to use as a router. But you need to manually configure few things.

RRAS > Server > IPv4 > Right Click  NAT > Properties > Select Address Assignment Tab:
Assign NAT the subnet address you are creating and click OK.

In NAT section, right click the Public IP adapter and select properties. In this scenario, an adapter with address. Click Services and Ports> Check and select Remote Desktop >  Edit > Select On  this Interface > Type [IP of the Guest Virtual Server]. Click Ok > Click  Ok.
That is it!!! We are done with RRAS configuration.

Things to remember:

• Make sure these ports [3389 - 3390] are open in Windows Firewall.
• In VM remote settings, allow remote connection.

If you need to provide static IP address to the Guest Virtual Machine, then the configuration will be like this in this scenario:

You should be able to access this subnet VM from any current network device now. In this scenario, you should be able to RDP into the server from any device with IP address of 192.168.1.X.

When implementing Dynamics AX for a client the four fields in these journals that I get asked the most about are the Relation, Account Code and Item Code fields as well as the Find next option. I’ll group the Account Code and Item Code fields together for simplicity. Both the Account Code and Item Code fields have three options available to them All, Group and Table.

We recently had a client who wanted to receive goods as quickly as possible off the delivery trucks as to open the receiving door for further deliveries. They also needed the option to put the received goods to two different receiving staging areas, depending on the product, before moving them to their final location in the warehouse.

The trouble here is that AX will not allow 2 put actions on a PO Receipt while also using the Unit Sequence and Unit Conversions of the item to assign license plates to less than pallet amounts during receipt. The quickest way to receive goods off the trucks in their case was to use the “Purchase Order Line Receiving” mobile device menu option. By using the “Line” rather than “Item” receiving option, we eliminate the need to type in lengthy Item IDs, instead opting to enter the PO line number on the order and having AX sort out which item and item details it’s expecting to receive.

The first thing you’ll need is a simple work template, that defines the pick/put actions and Work Class ID that is available to the mobile device to perform the work.
