Course Objectives

Windows 2000 – Network Protocols and Remote Access

  • define the different types of common networking protocols, identify how to configure network protocols, and determine when to use various network troubleshooting tools.
  • install the NWLink protocol, assign a static IP address, and change the binding order of the protocols.
  • recognize the function of network services, and identify how to manage and configure services to start on a server.
  • recognize how to create new dial-up connections, and how to configure the properties of a dial-up connection.
  • identify the functions of fax service management, set up a Windows 2000 server to send and receive faxes, and associate the fax service with a network printer and an Administrator user group.
  • define the functions of the Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) feature in Windows 2000, identify troubleshooting tools for network and dial-up connections, and recognize how to configure ICS.
  • enable Internet connection sharing and disable on-demand dialing.
  • identify how to enable and configure the Routing and Remote Access Service (RRAS), set up a remote access server and configure the server to use Remote Authentication Dial-in User Service (RADIUS), define different protocol settings, and recognize how to set up and configure a virtual private network (VPN) server.
  • create a remote access policy.
  • define the functions of remote access policies, recognize how to control remote access permission, identify how to create, modify, and delete remote access policies from the Routing and Remote Access MMC snap-in, and create a remote access policy for a virtual private network (VPN) connection.
  • recognize how virtual private networks (VPNs) communicate data, and identify how to configure Routing and Remote Access Server (RRAS) on the server and configure a VPN connection.
  • define how to use the Multilink Protocol (MP), the Bandwidth Allocation Protocol (BAP), and the Bandwidth Allocation Control Protocol (BACP) to configure remote access connections using multilink technology, and identify how to enable MP and BAP on a remote access server.
  • recognize the different problems that can result from enabling remote access to a network, and identify the security features and secure authentication protocols that Windows 2000 employs to reduce these risk factors.
