After creating the top-level service profile, Contoso tests its entire remote access solution before rolling it out. To test both the client and server aspects of the remote access solution, Contoso installs the Connection Manager profile onto a computer running each operating system the company supports and runs each possible user scenario. The company tests for the following from the Connection Manager client of each operating system:
A VPN connection to the company’s VPN remote access server.
A direct-dial connection to the company’s dial-up remote access server. By reviewing the Connection Manager log file, Contoso also confirms that the phone books are updating from the update URL provided by the company.
A double-dial connection to several phone numbers provided by the ISP to ensure that the RADIUS proxy is forwarding the RADIUS messages to the Contoso RADIUS server. By reviewing the Connection Manager log file, Contoso also confirms that the phone books are updating from the update URL provided by A. Datum.
