Configure network and security settings by editing the appropriate networking entry from the VPN Entries page and/or the Dial-Up Networking Entries page of the CMAK wizard. From the Edit VPN Entry and the Edit Dial-Up Networking Entry dialog boxes, you can customize general network properties, TCP/IP settings, and security settings.
Configuring General Network Properties
Use the general network properties to disable file and print sharing and enable clients to log on to a network. For a dial-up connection, you can also enter a dial-up networking script.
Configuring TCP/IP Settings
Use the TCP/IP settings to change the Domain Name System (DNS) and Windows Internet Name Service (WINS) client configuration by either allowing the server to assign these addresses or manually configuring the DNS and WINS addresses for this profile. You can also choose to make this connection the default gateway for the client and to use IP header compression.
Configuring Security Settings
Use the security settings to select the authentication method for VPN or dial-up users and the VPN strategy for VPN clients. You can choose to use basic or advanced security settings for all computers or use a combination. If you choose a combination of both basic and advanced security settings, Connection Manager uses the advanced security settings for clients running on the operating systems that support them and basic security settings for clients running on operating systems that do not support advanced security settings.
