Lesson 1

Terminal Sevices and Remote Access

Implementing Remote Access and Terminal Services introduces you to the fundamentals of installing and implementing terminal services and configuring remote access. You will learn how to implement a Microsoft Windows Terminal Server that will allow Terminal Clients to obtain their own desktop environments right on the Terminal Server. After being introduced to the capabilities of the Windows 2000 Terminal Services, you will learn how to set up a Terminal Server and Terminal Clients, customizing the client environment based on scripts and Group Policy. The Windows 2000 Remote Access Server (RAS) provides many enhanced features over those you had available in the RAS server in Windows NT 4.0, which you will also learn about. You will learn to use Extensible Authentication Protocol, IPSec, L2TP, and the Bandwidth Allocation Protocol (BAP). You will also learn how to recognize which components will serve the needs of your organization, and how to implement the new features. The final part of the course covers configuring outgoing and incoming connections to and from a RAS server. You will see how to install and configure modems and Virtual Private Network interfaces, which will allow users to connect a network to other networks in a secure fashion over the Internet. Finally, you will define and create a security policy by implementing IPSec and EFS.
