VPN Client Deployment

By gregg_gilliam ·
On the MS website there is this fancy demo of using a self-extracting executable to install a Microsoft VPN client onto the users computer. I just setup a VPN server using RRAS (Routing and Remote Access) in Windows 2000 Server. I would like to how to create that VPN client installation for deploying to end users. The demo said the client can be customized with pictures and can have a support number included. Since Microsoft showed this in their demo I am assuming that the ability to createsuch a distribution method is inherrent in their software. They also show an intranet page starting automatically once the VPN connection is established. Is this done with remote policies? Any help would be great. Thanks.

By the way the demo I spoke of is at... http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/demos/mod09.htm

You can use the MMC to create a snap-in that will allow you to customize your VPN settings by using the Network Connection Manager. When you are in there you can set up everything they showed you on that demo. You can also try different setups like RADIUS(remote authentication dial-in user service) Check out the microsoft KB articles RFC 2138/2139

Answer #1 is correct, you need to use the Connection Manager Administration Kit (CMAK) to create what you saw in the demo.
Technet article 317593 tells you step-by-step how to create the self-extracting executible using CMAK. The article is called "HOW TO: Create a Custom Connection Manager Service Profile in Windows 2000"

Just follow the steps, and you should be fine.
