Are you in need of remote access to servers? This step-by-step guide describes how to set up a Routing and Remote Access service on Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition or Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition to allow authenticated users to remotely connect to another network by way of the Internet. This secure connection provides access to all internal network resources, such as messaging, file and print sharing, and Web server access. The remote character of this connection is transparent to the user, so the overall experience of using remote access is similar to that of working at a workstation on a local network.
Remote server management provides 24/7 monitoring and administration capabilities for your servers from any location and device. You can remotely access hosts, execute commands, monitor their availability status, raise alerts on critical system events, and apply software updates and configurations from remote devices.
Remote monitoring and reporting enable you to see how your remote hosts perform in terms of availability, usage, and performance. They provide different capabilities to allow you remotely manage servers in different ways.
