Using W2K Server as a VPN Server

By gavin ·
I am planning on setting up a Windows 2000 Server in a mixed environment as a RAS server.

I have a couple of questions:

1) Can a member server (W2K) act as a RAS server, or does it need ACtive Directory?
2) Will a W2K RAS Server assign IPs to remote clients when the DCHP server is NT 4?

Thanks!

Gavin

1- An RRAS server can be a member, and does not need AD. And you actually shouldn't expose AD by putting it on a RRAS.
2- Win2K RRAS will assign IP's via an NT4 DHCP server. Note: you should also config the RRAS server as a DHCP relay host, to ensure the clients get all scope settings.

First thing you need to address is do you want a VPN. your questions are related to a RAS connection. This is a direct dial into the network. A vpn will allow connection via the internet. This isnt done using win2k. win2k does have a client but i would recommend using it. Have a look at the sonicwall web site there firewall has a VPN solution that is very easy to implement and reasonabily cheap. Cisco also have a lot of info about VPN's. But personally i would go with sonicwall. I have 150+ users with VPN connections and I have no problems with it.

1) Yes it can! You don't need Active Directory to setup VPN.
2) Not sure but you can specify a manual IP range for greater flexibility.
