Virtual private networks

The Microsoft® Windows Server™ 2003 Routing and Remote Access service provides virtual private network (VPN) services for remote access and router-to-router VPN connections by using either Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) or Layer Two Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) with Internet Protocol security (IPSec).

Note

  • On Windows Server 2003, Web Edition, and Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition, you can create up to 1,000 Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) ports, and you can create up to 1,000 Layer Two Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) ports. However, Windows Server 2003, Web Edition, can accept only one virtual private network (VPN) connection at a time. Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition, can accept up to 1,000 concurrent VPN connections. If 1,000 VPN clients are connected, further connection attempts are denied until the number of connections falls below 1,000.
