A LAN adapter provides the connection from a dial-up remote access server to the intranet. To enable this connection, you must configure TCP/IP on the LAN adapter and, on the dial-up remote access server, configure the modem ports for remote access.
Configuring TCP/IP on the LAN adapter
Configure the following TCP/IP settings on the LAN adapter that provides the connection from the dial-up remote access server to the intranet:
The IP address and subnet mask assigned by a network administrator.
The default gateway of a local router.
The IP addresses of DNS and WINS servers.
Configuring a connection to dial-up networking clients
To enable multiple dial-up clients to connect to the intranet simultaneously, the dial-up solution must have a modem bank connected to a telecommunications provider. The modem bank adapter includes drivers that you install on the dial-up remote access server.
Configuring dial-in ports for remote access
After the modem bank adapter drivers are installed, the modem bank appears as a device with multiple modem ports. Use the Routing and Remote Access snap-in to configure all of the active modem bank ports on the dial-up remote access server.
To configure the ports of a device for remote access
Open the Routing and Remote Access snap-in.
In the console tree, expand the name of the dial-up remote access server.
Right-click Ports, and then click Properties.
In the Ports Properties dialog box, select the device that you want to configure, and then click Configure.
In the Configure Device dialog box, select the appropriate options, such as routing and remote access connections, the phone number for the device, and the maximum number of ports that the device supports.
