From the beginning, writing
Deploying Virtual Private Networks with Microsoft Windows Server 2003
was a labor of love for me. As the lead program manager for Secure Network Access in Windows Networking, I have seen the VPN features of Window Server 2003 deployed for many customers, and it is a matter of passion for me to make sure that everyone and
Joe and I also want to thank Susan Ferrell and Douglas Goodwin, who assisted in providing content, and Rany El Housieny, who provided key pieces of the technical information for the CD. You guys are awesome—thanks for helping to bring this book together.
The team at Microsoft Press is simply hands-down the best publishing group I have ever worked with. Jean Trenary and Valerie Woolley were instrumental throughout the writing process. They helped me stay on track and to get the tools I needed to write this book; they crunched the schedules, kept us moving, and hounded me in all the right ways. Completing and publishing the book wouldn’t have been possible without their help! Through tight schedules, changing staff, and all kinds adversity, you two kept this machine moving. Well done—and thank you!
Any author will tell you that the most painful part of writing a book is not creating the chapter content—it’s having the editorial staff tear through the work and bring you back to reality on your writing skills. Jim Johnson was the technical editor for the book, and I want to say that I have never had a better technical editor in any of the writing projects I have done.

And finally—my father, Mark Lewis, told me recently that it’s one of his great dreams to see his name in print in a published book. My mother, Adrianne Yaffe, is an aspiring author herself, and I’m sure that she will accomplish this feat on her own. But for you, Dad, well, some wishes do come true. (Now, if only the New York Giants could win another Super Bowl for us, J.) I love you both.
