The Network Policy and Access Services role provides a number of remote access and network policy services including the Network Policy Server and Routing and Remote Access Services. RAS servers can provide dial-in remote access by using asynchronous modems and can also supply remote access via virtual private networks.

Remote access is enabled on the Routing and Remote Access service in the RRAS snap-in, which can be run in the Server Manager or the MMC.

RAS ports must be configured for dial-in service on the server’s modem or other connectivity devices. The RAS server must also be configured for incoming calls. VPN ports are added by default to the RAS server when you configure the server for VPN.

A number of different authentication protocols, such as EAP, MS-CHAP, and Shiva, are used to authenticate remote users to the RAS server. The remote client must be configured with the same authentication protocol that is required by the RRAS server.

You can configure ports and monitor access to your RAS server in the RRAS snap-in. You can view the length of a VPN or dial-in remote connection and you can also terminate connections if needed.

RAS servers can embrace Windows authentication (via the RRAS server) or then can take advantage of RADIUS authentication, in which a dedicated RADIUS server provides authentication of remote users. The Windows Server 2008 Network Policy Server service can be configured as a RADIUS server.
