Windows 2000 Virtual Private Networking


Windows 2000 Virtual Private Networking Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Substantial interest in VPN has been created by concerns for privacy and data protection. You, the administrator must be aware of security concepts and network designs, and yet, customers require flexible network environments that will satisfy the needs of today's computer users. You must support laptop users, home LAN environments, complex branch offices, and more--all within a secure and effective network design. The way you implement VPNs in Windows 2000 is different than any other operating system. Windows 2000 Virtual Private Networking will cover all aspects of both the tunnel client. Microsoft is using PPTP, L2TP and IPSec all in this one product and the configuration of both tunnel and transport configuration can be very complex. This book covers what you, the network designer can do with this capability; new VPN features that can affect Active Directory replication; network address translation; Proxy and more will be covered in depth.

In addition, he was the key architect of the HappyVPN test network¿a deployment of Active Directory over a distributed network based entirely on VPN links using Windows 2000 tunneling technologies.
