Learn About Windows Server 2008, Enterprise Administrator

The following are questions from MeasureUp Practice Test for the Microsoft IT Professional exam 70-647: Windows Server 2008, Enterprise Administrator

Objective: Plan network and application services.
Sub-objective: Design for network access.
Single answer, multiple choice

Your network is configured as an Active Directory domain. The network is protected from the Internet by a perimeter network. There are two Web servers deployed in the perimeter network. Both Web servers support Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connections.

You deploy a computer running Microsoft Windows Server 2008 and configure the computer to support Routing and Remote Access Service (RRAS). You need to configure the server to support incoming virtual private network (VPN) connections. Changes to perimeter network firewalls must be kept to a minimum. Communication between the remote client and RRAS server must be encrypted. What should you do?
A.    Use SSTP for client connections.
B.    Use PPTP for client connections.
C.    Use L2TP/IPSec for client connections.
D.    Use RDP for client connections.


You should use Secure Sockets Transport Protocol (SSTP) for client connections. SSTP provides a secure connection. SSTP support was introduced with Windows Server 2008. Communication between the client and RRAS server are encrypted. The connection uses port 443, the same port as SSL, so you do not have to change the firewall configuration.

You should not use Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP). PPTP does not, in itself, provide for encryption. It would also require you to open an additional port…
