Overview of Windows 2000 Remote Access Server

Windows NT 3.1 Remote Access Server supported IP, IPX, NetBEUI, compression, and basic encryption. Windows NT 4.0 RAS added two more protocols, PPP and PPTP, plus new features such as autodial and demand-dial routing. Now, Windows 2000 Remote Access Server supports even more protocols, for example, L2TP, IPSec, EAP, and RADIUS. Windows 2000 operating system offers fully integrated routing, API availability for developers to accommodate custom protocols or tools, a simpler Network and Dial-up Connections interface for the RAS user, and centralized management for the RAS administrator through the Routing and Remote Access MMC snap-in.

Windows 2000 RAS allows point-to-point, point-to-LAN, LAN-to-LAN, and LAN-to-WAN connections. In previous releases, RAS on Server was limited to 256 simultaneous connections, but now RAS is limited only by the capability of the hardware installed in the server. W2K RAS supports IP, IPX, NetBEUI, and Apple Talk. Windows 2000 Professional has been enhanced to accept one incoming call per media type, for a total of three possible inbound sessions, through the NIC, a modem, or serial device.
