RAS over a network?

By jim ·
I know this has been addressed on other sites, but I haven't seen an answer on TPG.

Anyway, I understand how to set up an RAS server for dial-up access. I also know how to set up a client to dial into an RAS server to gain access.

My question is, can an RAS server be set up to allow an administrator to gain access over a network? For example, say I am at the other end of our building and I need to manage several things on the server in the computer room at the other end of the building. I would like to just log onto an NT workstation and simply connect (with security, of course) to the server.

How can this be accomplished?

Thanks!

RAS basically only performs a 'router' funcion which give you a network connection. [modem or otherwise] STEELHEAD is M.S.'s most powerful RAS and Router service [free dl from MS]. What you're trying to do is "remote control" You've already got the network connection over the LAN.

Many 3rd party remote control programs like "pcanywhere" will do the trick.

Or use the Windows NT "server tools" [clients\srvtools] on the NT install CD. It has seperate tools for W9x and NT WS to "remotely" useUser Manager, Server Manager, RAS manager, Wins manager, DHCP manager,Policy Editor, etc.. You can do most admin task remotely with these tools.

For example, you can create a user/group with "usermanager", you can create a share with "servermanager", you can use NT Explorer to set the NTFS rights on that share.

I beleive when you are setting up RAS facility it will ask you for the modem and when it does show you the list of modems there is something like port to port communication (which is basically computer to computer communication). By selecting this instead of the modem might help you.
