Chapter 17. Networking on the Run > Managing Remote Connections

Managing Remote Connections

Once the user is attached to the remote access server and the network, the remote access software that you are using on your server will provide you with the ability to monitor that remote connection and any other remote connections on the server. This means that you can monitor the activity of the remote client in terms of the number of bytes that are sent and received and the time that the client has been logged on to the network.

On a Windows Server 2003 remote access server, dial-in connections are monitored and managed using the Routing and Remote Access tool, as shown in Figure 17.6. Not only can the connection be monitored, but the connection can be terminated by the network administrator. This allows you to sever unattended connections and free up modems for other dial-in connections. Hey, the network administrator giveth, and the network administrator taketh away.
