Installing RAS Server

As always, check Microsoft's HCL before purchasing any components. Windows 2000 Remote Access Server can be installed on Windows 2000 Server or Advanced Server as a standalone server or as a Domain Controller. Installing RAS is a bit of a misnomer here, because it is fully integrated with the Windows 2000 operating system. So, simply use the Microsoft Management Console and the RRAS (Routing and Remote Access) snap-in as the API to gain administrative access to the Remote Access service. This chapter describes Remote Access Server only, so routing issues will not be discussed. The following list details how to open the RRAS MMC and enable the service.

  1. Open the Routing and Remote Access snap-in in the MMC; or choose Start, Programs, Administrative Tools, Routing and Remote Access from the menu.

    You will see the local computer selected by default. Alternatively, you can right-click Server Status and choose Add Server, which brings up a dialog box that allows you to select either the local machine, choose a specific machine by name, select all RRAS servers, or search the AD for the server.

    After adding the server, the server object appears in the console tree under Server Status.

  2. To enable Routing and Remote Access service on the server added, right-click the server object and choose Configure and Enable Routing and Remote Access.

    This launches the Routing and Remote Access Wizard.
