RAS: Remote Access Service
In todays world, we are more
productive then ever. Modern devices, such as microwave ovens have reduced
the time for basic needs. Instead of more leisure time, we have more
time to work to keep improving productivity. Now we get to take our
work home without carrying a briefcase.
NT gives us the ability
to be remote from the network, and still be on
the network. This is done with the Remote Access
Service (RAS). NT will use RAS in conjunction
with a modem to have all the rights (or lack of) and resources,
just as if you were in the office.
RAS for Remote
NT needs RAS to support Remote Access.
For some reason, many geeks just dont get RAS. Your authors dont see what is tough about RAS. Sure, if NT is involved, RAS and a modem has to be installed (and that isnt tough). The story that seems to be missed is with RAS, it is just like have a long and skinny network cable attached to the PC that is remote. If you have access to certain printers in the office, you have access via RAS. If you dont have access to the color laser at work, you wont have access with RAS. The only difference between being there and being remote is speed. If you use IPX as a transport protocol at work, then IPX needs to be installed on the remote computer.
Once RAS is installed, going
to the desktop and launching the Dial Up Networking
Icon (through Network Connections or create a shortcut to the connection)
Local Area Connection can connect you to the office network.
You can also go to Start, Settings, Network and Dial-up Connections
in Windows 2000.
