Remote Access Protocols

The remote access technology of Windows Server 2008 allows clients to dial into a Windows network over phone lines from remote points; for example, a salesperson calling in an order from a client location or hotel room. Windows Server 2008 includes the Routing and Remote Access (RRAS) server feature, to which you were introduced in Chapter 3, “Configuring Routing.” In that chapter, you learned about the routing component; this chapter introduces the Remote Access Service (RAS) component, which facilitates this type of connection. Using RAS, remote access clients can dial-in from remote locations and access resources as if they were physically attached to the network.

You can achieve remote access connectivity by using either of two mechanisms described in Table 14-2.
