RAS Error Message: the port was reserved for routers only (Event ID 20188)
What's causing this error message when I initiate a
connection to the Windows 2000 RRAS? As far as I know, I didn't reserve any
ports for routers.

The user xxx, attempting to connect on VPNx-y, was disconnected because of
the following reason: A Remote Access Client attempted to connect over a port
that was reserved for Routers only.
It sounds like the ports are configured for demand-dial routing instead
of inbound dial in services. In RRAS MMC check the properties on "ports", and check the configuration
whatever port type you're using. You usually want to deselect
and just check on "inbound connections". If that system is used both
as a dial in server as well as a router, both settings must be checked.
