RAS Server/PPTP Server (Incoming) Overview
The RAS Server/PPTP Server (Incoming) feature for Microsoft® Windows® CE .NET provides support for a Remote Access Service (RAS) server. You can use RAS in any computing environment that has a wide area network (WAN) or a virtual private network (VPN). RAS makes it possible to connect a remote client computer to a network server over a WAN link or a VPN. A device can function as a RAS server that allows clients to connect to that device by using a WAN connection. A Windows CE-based RAS server can accept connections through any Network Driver Interface Specification (NDIS) miniport in a WAN, including the Point-to-Point-Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) and AsyncMAC miniports. AsyncMAC is an NDIS WAN miniport driver that manages the sending and receiving of packets over Telephony API (TAPI) devices. These devices include direct serial and modem connections.
