Configuring, Managing, Monitoring, and Troubleshooting Remote Access in a Windows 2000 Network Infrastructure

Windows 2000's Remote Access capabilities are far more superior and complex than Windows NT 4.0. This MCSE exam exploits every feature or RRAS, and expects you to be a master of it. This quiz tests your abilities and knowledge of RRAS.

1. Todd is the network administrator for an architectural firm in Indianapolis. His network has two Windows 2000 Servers acting as domain controllers, two Windows 2000 member servers, and 99 Windows 2000 Professional workstations. Recently, the company started a project that requires 12 Windows 2000 Professional workstations to be installed in Columbus, Indiana—roughly 70 miles from the current office. The 12 workers at this remote location need to access the network resources in Indy. Todd's original plans were to install a domain controller in the remote office, along with a fractional T1 line. Although Jan, the office manager, did not approve the expense of a new server for the six-month project, she did, however, approve the cost of the Internet connection. What can Todd do to allow the remote users to access resources in Indianapolis?

  1. Todd should implement a VPN.

  2. Todd should implement RRAS.

  3. Todd should implement RAS.

  4. Todd should implement Dfs.

Answer: 25

Todd has decided to install a VPN connection. Jan, however, is concerned about the security of using the Internet as a backbone. What can Todd do to ensure the security of the data transferred and accessed between the two locations? (Choose all that apply.)

  1. Todd should implement smart cards for the remote users.

  2. Todd should implement Dfs for the remote users.

  3. Todd should implement PPTP.

  4. Todd should implement IPSec.

Answer: 27

4. Marcy is the network administrator of a Windows 2000 domain. Her network consists of six Windows 2000 Servers: three are domain controllers, and the other three are Windows 2000 member servers. All of the 435 clients on the network are Windows 2000 Professional workstations. Additionally, Marcy is responsible for 187 Windows 2000 Professional laptops used by the sales reps as they travel. Grant, the sales manager, asked Marcy to create a way for the salespeople around the country to access the local network through a dial-up connection. Marcy has agreed to install a bank of 96 modems and configure RRAS to accept incoming calls. A few weeks later, Grant reports that the salespeople often receive a busy signal when they try to connect. Upon further investigation, Marcy discovers that many users are accessing the network from home during the evening hours and blocking the sales team from connecting. What can Marcy do to ensure that only the sales team connects to the network remotely?

  1. Create a policy that allows only the sales team to connect. Add each sales member to the policy.

  2. Create a policy that allows only the sales team to connect. Add the sales group to the policy.

  3. Create a policy to deny all from accessing the network remotely. Exclude the sales group from the policy.

  4. Create a policy that denies all users from accessing the network during evening hours. Exclude the sales group from this policy.

Answer: 28

5. You are the network administrator for Advertising Specialties, Inc. Your network consists of two Windows 2000 Servers acting as domain controllers, three Windows 2000 member servers, 25 Windows 2000 Professional workstations on the LAN and 78 Windows 2000 Professional workstations on laptops throughout the southeast United States. You have configured one of your member servers as an RRAS server to support the dial-in accounts from the remote users. It has come to your attention, however, that some of the users of the remote workstations are staying connected for hours on end because they forget to disconnect. This costs hundreds of dollars in wasted phone time. Your supervisor, Robert, has asked you to create a method for eliminating the wasted phone time. What should you do?

  1. Change the callback setting to call the user back at a number they specify.

  2. Specify through a policy that users can connect for only one hour; they then are disconnected.

  3. Specify through a policy that users are disconnected if they are idle for more then fifteen minutes.

  4. Change the RRAS server from dial-up to VPN. Instruct the remote users to connect to their local service providers and to the office network.

6. Holly is the network administrator for a Windows 2000 domain. She has two Windows 2000 Servers acting as domain controllers, two Windows 2000 member servers, and 76 Windows 2000 Professional workstations. Holly also supports 23 Windows 2000 Professional workstations installed on laptops for the users who work from home. The home users connect through modems to a RRAS Server on one of the member servers. One user, John, asked Holly if there is any way to speed up the dial-up connection to the server. John transfers illustrations to a network share, and the dial-up connection is very slow for the size of the files transferreUnfortunately, John does not have a cable modem or DSL where he lives. What can Holly do to make the transfer of files faster?

  1. Holly can enable multilink for John if he has two phone lines.

  2. Holly can enable priority for John's account on the dial-up connection.

  3. Holly can boost the connection throughput on John's account to the "maximum throughput" setting.

  4. There is nothing that Holly can do to speed up this connection.

Answer: 30

7. Henrietta is the Windows 2000 domain administrator. Her network has three Windows 2000 Servers acting as domain controllers, three Windows 2000 member servers, and 243 Windows 2000 Professional workstations. She also supports 73 Windows 2000 Professional workstations that access the network remotely. Recently, many of the users have complained about the slow speed of the access to the server via the dial-up accounts. Many of the home-based users have cable modems and DSL lines to connect to the Internet, and only use their analog modems to connect to Henrietta's RRAS server. What should Henrietta do to improve the connection speed for the remote users?

  1. Remove the analog connections and create a VPN connection.

  2. Add a VPN connection for the remote users.

  3. Install DSL and cable modems for the remote users.

Your company has recently just hired 30 mobile users who will travel across the country on sales calls and presentations. These 30 users can connect to your network through a RRAS server, either through a VPN or through a dial-up connection—depending on their locations and Internet access. Mark, the sales manager, asked you about the security of the calls because he thinks some of the data could be jeopardized through your configuration. What can you do to alleviate Mark's concerns?

  1. Add smart cards for all of the remote users.

  2. Add encryption on the RRAS Server for the remote users.

  3. Add a RADIUS Server.

9. Yolanda is the Windows 2000 administrator for a small domain. Her network has two Windows 2000 Servers acting as domain controllers and one Windows 2000 member server configured with RRAS. Locally, she supports 12 Windows 2000 Professional workstations, but remotely she supports 23 Windows 2000 Professional workstations that access the network through a VPN. She has contacted you, the Windows 2000 expert, to advise her on the connection protocol she should use for the remote hosts connecting to her network. She is very worried about eavesdropping and the jeopardy of the data transferred to the remote users on the VPN. What should Yolanda do?

  1. Yolanda should implement PPTP.

  2. Yolanda should implement L2TP.

  3. Yolanda should implement IPSec.

  4. Yolanda should implement SLIP.

10. You are the network administrator for a Windows 2000 domain. Your network has three Windows 2000 Servers acting as domain controllers, two Windows 2000 member servers, and 233 Windows 2000 Professional workstations. Several of your users connect to your network through a VPN. Sally, the CEO, has asked you to verify that the data transferred to and from the remote users is secure over the VPN. You assure her that you are using 3DES encryption. Which protocol do you use to get 3DES encryption?

  1. PPP
