Configuring and Troubleshooting Windows 2000 Network Connections
Although this exam doesn't get into the finer points of networking, you will need to understand the installation and configuration of TCP/IP, DHCP, DNS, and WINS. In regard to TCP/IP, you can expect to see IP addresses and subnets written as 10.10.10.88/24. The /24 represents the number of bits used in the subnet mask; for this example, it's 255.255.255 because 24 of the 32 bits are used. Don't let it bother you.
RRAS (Routing and Remote Access Services) is a powerful tool used to create VPNs (Virtual Private Networks) and dial-in access for users. You'll need experience in creating a VPN and controlling access to it. Also, through RRAS, know how to create and control dial-in access for users through policies and a remote access profile.
Included with Windows 2000 is Terminal Services. You'll be tested on using Terminal Services to administer remote servers and configuring Terminal Services for application sharing.
Finally, you should know how to install and troubleshoot network device drivers and protocols.
Study Hint: Know the process for installing and configure GSNW (Gateway Services for Netware).
