Remote Access tutorials

  • It is ability to remotely connect to computer resources on network.

  • Connects individual user from home, branch, city etc.

  • Connection by different types of hardware using

  • Dial up via modem

  • VPN over the internet

  • Remote link acts like an extremely long Ethernet Cable and all protocols can be passed over connection.



  • Available almost using modem, isdn etc. with this line if we want 25 dial up connections we will need 25 Modem and 25 Telephone Lines.



Virtual private network (VPN) connections overview

  • With the Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) or Layer Two Tunneling Protocol (L2TP), which are automatically installed on your computer, you can securely access resources on a network by connecting to a remote access server through the Internet or other network. The use of both private and public networks to create a network connection is called a virtual private network (VPN). The following table describes the advantages of using VPN connections.


  • VPN support more connection than dial up. With Windows server 2003 Standard or Enterprise edition we can connect 1,000 PPTP (Point to Point Tunneling Protocol) connections and 1,000 L2TP (Layer Two Tunneling Protocol)


Enhanced security

The connection using VPN over the Internet is encrypted and secure. New authentication and encryption protocols are enforced by the remote access server. Sensitive data is hidden from Internet users, but made securely accessible to appropriate users through a VPN.



  • Introduced with Windows NT Server 4.0

  • Based on extension to PPP (Point to Point Protocol)

  • Support 128 bits encryption

  • Does not support PKI (Public-Key Infrastructure) Certification Infrastructure



  • Industry standard Tunneling Protocol

  • Supported since Windows 2000, XP and Server 2003

  • Recommended Setup need Certificate Infrastructure

  • Can be implemented with IPSec (IP securities)

  • Keeps Data confidential
