Installing RAS

RAS is a network service in Windows NT 4.0 and is installed from the Network icon in the Control Panel. Double-click the Network icon and move to the Services tab, then follow these steps:

  1. Choose Add and then choose Remote Access Service from the Network Service box. Choose OK.

  2. Enter the path for the Windows NT files (usually \d:I386, where d is the drive letter for your CD-ROM) and choose OK.

  3. The Remote Access Service files are transferred to your hard drive, and then the Add RAS Device dialog box displays a list of RAS-capable devices. Choose OK to accept the list; or choose Install Modem, or Install X25 Pad if the list does not include a device attached to the displayed modem.

  4. When the Remote Access Setup dialog box appears, choose Configure to configure the port usage. For this exercise, we'll configure this port to receive calls only, then choose OK.

  5. When you are returned to the Remote Access Setup dialog box, choose Network to establish network settings for client computers that will dial in. The Network Configuration dialog box appears (see Figure 18.13), and you must set the configuration options for each network protocol you'll need.
