Local and Remote Network Connections
The Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional Network and Dial-up Connections feature provides connectivity to local and remote networking resources, as well as Internet resources. Network and Dial-up Connections improves upon the dial-up networking functionality in Microsoft Windows 98 and Microsoft Windows NT version 4.0 by providing improved autoconfiguration of networking components and devices, and a single folder in which to configure all networking options. Tools, such as local Group Policy and Connection Manager, can assist you in managing connections in your enterprise. This chapter describes the Network and Dial-up Connections feature and includes a remote networking scenario.
