Some of the profile settings described in the previous section must have corresponding entries on the remote access server. This section covers those settings as well as other specific configurations that can be performed on a server. To make configuration changes to a remote access server, open Routing And Remote Access, right-click the server name in the console tree, and choose Properties from the shortcut menu. The various settings available in the Properties dialog box are as follows:
- Authentication Settings To access the authentication settings, click the Security tab in the server's Properties dialog box, and then click Authentication Methods. By default, Microsoft's Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocols (MS-CHAP and MS-CHAP v2) are selected.
- IP Routing And Assignment The IP tab on the server's Properties dialog box gives access to the IP parameters. By default, the profiles in remote access policies use the server's settings for IP addresses. In turn, the server defaults to allowing IP routing and to assignment of IP addresses using DHCP. If you need to use a static address pool, choose that option and provide a range of addresses to be assigned to connections.
- Multilink And The BAP Click the PPP tab to access the options for enabling Multilink and the BAP. See the section Enabling Multilink and the Bandwidth Allocation Protocol, earlier in this chapter, for more information.
- Other Protocols In the PPP tab, click Software Compression to enable (or remove) support for the Microsoft Point-to-Point Compression (MPPC) protocol. You can also select the Link Control Protocol (LCP) Extensions to PPP.
For more information about the MPPC protocol, see RFC 2118, "Microsoft Point-to-Point Compression Protocol." See RFC 1570, "PPP LCP Extensions," for more about the LCP extensions.
