Remote Access This lesson covers remote access protocols. These protocols can work over a local area network (LAN) as well as on a VPN. These protocols include:
Remote Access Server (RAS): This is the server role providing remote access into a network; it may be on a parameter or forward data from VPN concentrator.
Remote Desktop (RDP): Peer to peer connectivity for another computer and appropriate permissions are needed.
Point to Point over Ethernet (PPPoE): encapsulate PPP packet in Ethernet frame and connect multiple users to Internet through DSL; set up to connect to ISP and provide username and password.
Independent Computing Architecture (ICA): This uses Citrix protocol and is a platform remote application connection. The applications run on one computer to be controlled by another computer.
