Configuring Remote Access
Microsoft Windows 2000 incorporated several new protocols for remote access, in addition to new wizards and interfaces for configuring all types of network connections. The Network Connection wizard, for
example, provides a simple interface for creating and configuring basic inbound and outbound connections, whereas Routing and Remote Access is a more robust management tool for configuring connections on
routed networks. An understanding of the new options and interfaces in Windows 2000 will assist you in connecting computers and configuring protocols correctly.
At the end of this module, you will be able to:
- Describe the new protocols that Windows 2000 supports
- Describe how Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) supports authentication
- Enable Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS)
- Describe the function of Internet Protocol Security (IPSec)
- Differentiate between L2TP and PPTP
- Enable Bandwidth Allocation Protocol (BAP)
In the next lesson, you will learn the new protocols supported by Windows 2000.
