VPN Server Name

The Routing and Remote Access service enables your server to be a virtual private network (VPN) server.

In Server name, type the fully qualified host name used to access your server from the Internet. The fully qualified host name is the server name of your server followed by your registered Internet domain name. For example, ServerName.microsoft.com.

For your remote client computers to connect to the server, this name must be registered with the DNS server at your Internet service provider (ISP). Alternatively, you can enter the IP address of the network adapter used to connect to the Internet.

Note

  • The VPN server name is used as the default destination server name in the Client Connection Manager configuration file. This file is used to configure client computers for remote access.
    To configure mobile client computers, such as laptops, that are currently connected to the local network, run the Set Up Computer Wizard, and then select the option to install Connection Manager. To configure remote client computers not currently connected to the local network, you can create a remote connection disk. You can then use the disk to configure the remote client computer to connect to the local network. Alternatively, users can download Connection Manager from the Remote Web Workplace.
    For more information about configuring remote access for client computers, click Start, and then click Help and Support.
