Course Overview (Music playing) Hi everyone, my name is Glenn Weadock, and welcome to my course, Configuring Windows 10 Devices: Manage Remote Access. I'm a consultant and seminar leader at Independent Software, Inc, in Colorado, and an author of over a dozen books on Windows, networking, and certification. This course explains the technologies available to users who are away from corporate headquarters, from PC-to-PC solutions like remote desktop, to PC-to-network solutions, like VPNs and DirectAccess. You will be able to configure remote systems for online and offline use, as well as address common concerns, such as power management, metered connection management, and broadband tethering. Some of the major topics that we will cover include making remote desktop connections more secure, what VPN protocol to choose, requirements to set up DirectAccess in your network, optimizing offline files synchronization using Group Policy, and turning a PC into a mobile hotspot. Now, by the end of this course, you'll know how to configure Network Level Authentication for Remote Desktop, the benefits of Remote Desktop Gateway and Remote Desktop Web Access, how to enable VPN Reconnect, the ways in which DirectAccess improves on traditional VPN solutions, how to configure offline files from both the server side and the client side, how to make hidden power plans visible, what metered connections are and when you should use them, and how to generate a detailed report on battery usage and health. Now, before beginning this course, you should be familiar with Windows fundamentals, but no advanced knowledge is required. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to implement Windows 10 Remote Access Solutions with the Manage Remote Access course at Pluralsight.
