MCTS Self-Paced Training Kit (Exam 70-653): Managing and Configuring Remote Access in Windows Small Business Server 2008

Chapter Summary

  • Remote access to Windows Small Business Server is secured by using self-issued or third-party certificates. The self-issued certificate is installed and bound to Remote Web Workplace when you run the Internet Address Management Wizard. Alternatively, you can use the Add A Trusted Certificate Wizard to install and manage a third-party certificate on the server.

  • You can enable and disable access to Remote Web Workplace and select available features on the Remote Web Workplace Properties page for individual users or entire groups. You can create and modify organization links that are displayed in the Windows Vista Desktop Links gadget using the Remote Web Workplace Links List properties. For remote access to a client computer on the Windows SBS 2008 network, Remote Web Workplace uses Remote Desktop Connection, Remote Desktop Protocol, and the Terminal Services Gateway Manager. You can use the certificatepackage.zip file to distribute and install the self-issued certificate on non-domain-joined client computers or mobile devices.

  • You can implement a virtual private network connection in Windows Small Business Server using the Set Up Virtual Private Networking Wizard. To configure additional ports you must use Routing and Remote Access.

  • Not only should you know which administrative tasks you can accomplish in the Windows SBS Console, you should also understand what actual changes are made in the background when you run a wizard and which processes are involved. This chapter covers the functions of the main Windows Small Business Server wizards that you can use to manage remote access. It also explains the processes launched by the wizards in the background.
