Implementing Windows Server 2016 Connectivity and Remote Access
by Glenn Weadock
Windows Server 2016 can function as a NAT router, a remote access VPN server, a site-to-site VPN server, and a RADIUS server. This course explains and demonstrates how to configure each of these roles.
What you'll learn
Windows Server 2016 provides tools for users to connect to corporate networks from outside the LAN, using VPNs where DirectAccess may not be feasible. Administrators can control and track remote connections using Network Policy Servers--Microsoft's implementation of RADIUS. Server 2016 also supports routing and NAT, which reduces the number of public IP addresses a company must purchase. In this course, Implementing Windows Server 2016 Connectivity and Remote Access, you will first learn how to use private IPs internally but still have access to the Internet. Next, you'll create a secure VPN server for remote access. Finally, you'll learn how to connect two cities with a site-to-site VPN, and configure a RADIUS server for centralized administration. By the end of this course, you'll not only learn what you need to get certified, you'll learn what you need to be a Windows Server 2016 hero in whatever capacity your job requires.
