RAS: Remote Access Service

In today’s 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.


[spacer]Understanding RAS

For some reason, many geeks just don’t get RAS. Your authors don’t see what is tough about RAS. Sure, if NT is involved, RAS and a modem has to be installed (and that isn’t 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 don’t have access to the color laser at work, you won’t 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.
