When you use VLAN-aware network hardware, such as routers, switches, and access controllers, you can configure remote access policy in Internet Authentication Service in Windows Server 2003 to instruct the access servers to place members of Active Directory groups on VLANs. When you configure the profile of an IAS remote access policy for use with VLANs, you must configure the attributes Tunnel-Medium-Type, Tunnel-Pvt-Group-ID, Tunnel-Type, and Tunnel-Tag. This ability to group network resources logically with VLANs provides flexibility when designing and implementing network solutions.
