Configure remote-access policies

Configure remote-access policies
By Kackie Charles

Going about setting up a virtual private network (VPN) is a detailed process. This tip, from Windows 2000 Routing and Remote Access Service, by Kackie Charles, published by New Riders, tells how to configure your remote access policies in a Windows 2000 server.

You need to set up appropriate user access permissions or remote access policies, depending on the user administration model you prefer.

If you are controlling access by user, set the remote access permissions to allow access on for the users who will need VPN access to the intranet. If you want to administer user access based on remote access policies, you will need to modify existing (or create new) policies. The policies must include these settings:

* NAS-Port Type. Set to virtual
* Grant remote access permission. Selected
* Default remote access policy (Called Allow access if dial-in permission is enabled). Must be deleted or moved after the new policy is enabled.
* Encryption. Must be set to No Encryption, Basic (56-bit DES IPSec or 40-bit MPPE) or Strong (56-Bit DES, IPSec or 56-bit MPPE), depending on your security requirements.
