What You've Learned

  • Gateway Setup Assistant is an installation tool that configures basic DHCP, NAT, firewall, and VPN services in an integrated fashion.

  • When firewall service is enabled, each IP service request that Mac OS X Server receives is first checked against a list of firewall rules that define which IP addresses have access to specific port numbers. You use Server Admin to configure firewall service in Mac OS X Server.

  • Server Admin lets you enable the PAT (port overloading) form of NAT, which maps multiple private IP addresses to a single public one using different ports.

  • VPN services let you encrypt transactions. VPN allows you to use the Internet for private network traffic. There are two protocols supported, L2TP and PPTP.
