Updated: January 21, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

Installing the remote access server

To enable and configure the remote access server, you must be logged on as a member of the Administrators group.

Hardware requirements

Before you install the Routing and Remote Access service, all hardware should be installed and working. Depending on your network and your requirements, you might need the following hardware:

  • Network adapter with a WHQL signed driver

  • One or more compatible modems and an available COM port

  • Multiport adapter for acceptable performance with multiple remote connections

  • X.25 smart card (if you are using an X.25 network)

  • ISDN adapter (if you are using an ISDN line)

To verify the compatibility of all hardware in a computer running Routing and Remote Access, see Support resources.

Installing the software

When you install a member of the Windows Server 2003 family, the remote access component is automatically installed. However, the Routing and Remote Access service is installed in a disabled state.

For more information, see Enable the Routing and Remote Access service.
