Applies To: Windows Server 2008

 

Dialog box element Description

Authentication provider

Lists the available authentication providers for remote access or demand-dial authentication.

Windows Authentication: The server uses either a local account database, or a domain account database to authenticate remote access or demand-dial connection credentials. Domain account databases can be either an Active Directory database or a Windows NT 4.0 domain account database. The server logs connection authentication information in log files that are configured in the properties of the Remote Access Logging folder.

RADIUS Authentication: The remote access server uses a Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) server to authenticate remote access or demand-dial connection credentials.

Configure

Click to configure the selected authentication provider.

Authentication Methods

Click to configure the authentication methods supported by this server for remote access and demand-dial connections.

Accounting provider

Lists the available accounting providers for remote access or demand-dial connections.

Windows Accounting: The server logs connection accounting information in log files that are configured in the properties of the Remote Access Logging folder.

RADIUS Accounting: The server sends connection accounting information to a Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) server.

Configure

Click to configure the selected accounting provider.

Allow custom IPsec policy for L2TP connection

Specifies whether an L2TP connection can use a custom IPsec policy. If you select this check box, you must specify a pre-shared key for use by all connections that use this custom IPsec policy.

Pre-shared Key

A pre-shared key for use with a custom IPsec policy. This pre-shared key must be configured on each client computer that will connect using this policy.

Additional considerations

If Network Policy Server (NPS) is installed on this server, the preceding dialog box elements will not appear, except for authentication methods and custom IPsec policy configuration. Instead, you use NPS to configure authentication and accounting providers by creating or modifying authentication policies.
