Configure remote access

To complete this procedure, you must be logged on as a member of the Domain Admins security group.

  1. Start the Remote Access Wizard.
  2. Follow the instructions to complete the wizard.
  3. Once you finish the wizard, you can configure client computers to remotely connect to the local network by doing one of the following:
    • To configure mobile client computers, such as laptops, that are currently connected to the local network, run the Set Up Computer Wizard, and then select the option to install Connection Manager.
    • To configure remote client computers not currently connected to the local network, you can create a remote connection disk. You can then use the disk to configure the remote client computer to connect to the local network. Alternatively, users can download Connection Manager from the Remote Web Workplace.
      For more information about configuring client computers, see Connect remotely to the server. For more information about using the Remote Web Workplace, see Understanding Remote Web Workplace.
  4. You must also assign users to the Mobile Users security group so they have the necessary permissions for remotely accessing the local network. To do so, assign the Mobile User template, Administrator template, or Power User template to the user account by doing one of the following:
    • To make existing users a member of this group, run the Change User Permissions Wizard.
    • If the user does not currently exist, run the Add User Wizard.
