Updated: January 21, 2005
Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2
To enable authentication protocols
Open Routing and Remote Access.
Right-click the server name for which you want to enable authentication protocols, and then click Properties.
On the Security tab, click Authentication Methods.
In the Authentication Methods dialog box, select the appropriate check boxes for the authentication protocols that the remote access server will use to authenticate remote clients, and then click OK.
To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators group. As a security best practice, consider using the Run As command rather than logging on with administrative credentials. If you have logged on with administrative credentials, you can also open Routing and Remote Access by clicking Start, clicking Control Panel, double-clicking Administrative Tools, and then double-clicking Routing and Remote Access. For more information, see Default local groups, Default groups, and Using Run as.
Information about functional differences
Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
