Task 6.3: Configuring the VPN Client

In Task 6.2, you initialized and configured the VPN server. The server would be connected to the corporate LAN, behind a firewall. The firewall, actually the Network Address Translation (NAT) server component of the firewall, would be configured to forward all inbound VPN connections to the internal VPN server.

No server service is useful until it has clients. That goes for VPN servers as well.


You are the administrator of a Microsoft Windows Active Directory environment and have workers who telecommute. You must configure the client systems to access resources securely over the Internet.

This task requires the completion of Task 6.2, “Configuring the VPN Server.”
