Chapter Summary

 < Day Day Up > 



  • Windows Server 2003 supports two VPN protocols: PPTP and L2TP/IPSec. PPTP was developed by Microsoft, and it is the default protocol. L2TP/IPSec is an Internet standard that provides interoperability with a greater number of clients.

  • Windows Server 2003 supports eight methods for authenticating users: EAP, MS- CHAP v2, MS-CHAP v1, CHAP, SPAP, PAP, preshared keys, and unauthenticated access.

  • Use EAP to authenticate users with a public key certificate or smart card. Only Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, and Windows 2000 clients support EAP.

  • You can configure a remote access server and clients without changing the default settings. By default, encryption is required, and MS-CHAP v2 or MS-CHAP v1 authentication will be used.

  • Edit the remote access server’s properties to increase or restrict the available authentication protocols. Select EAP authentication to enable authentication with public key certificates or smart cards.

  • User authorization can be controlled from three places: the user’s dial-up properties, a RAP configured on the remote access server, and a RAP configured on the IAS RADIUS server.

  • You can manually configure remote access authentication and encryption settings on individual client computers by editing the properties of the network connection.

  • Use the CMAK Wizard to create executable files that create preconfigured remote access connections on client computers.
