This appendix provides detailed information about how you can use five computers to create a test lab in which you can create and test Connection Manager profiles. These instructions also take you step by step through creating and installing Connection Manager profiles for dial-up remote access, virtual private network (VPN) remote access with Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP), VPN remote access with Layer Two Tunneling Protocol with Internet Protocol Security (L2TP/ IPSec), and VPN remote access with Extensible Authentication Protocol-Transport Level Security (EAP-TLS) authentication. As you complete this test lab, you will also test two methods of distributing profiles to client computers: from a floppy disk and over an intranet connection.
The instructions in this procedure are cumulative. To reproduce the test lab configurations detailed in this procedure, you must complete each section in the sequence in which it appears, and you must follow the steps in each section in sequence.
The following instructions describe configuring a test lab to test the relevant scenarios. To clearly separate the services provided on the network and to show the desired functionality, you need a minimum of four servers. In addition, these test lab configurations reflect neither best practices nor a desired or recommended configuration for a production environment. These test lab configurations, including IP addresses and all other configuration parameters, are designed to work only on a test lab network.
