|Need modem access to windows server 2008 R2|
We have a VPN server running under Linux that we use to connect to the company LAN.
It happened several times that the pptpd server hangs and then the door to the office LAN is closed untill the pptpd/VPN service is recycled.
When this happens, there is a NT 4 server with a RAS and an analog PSTN modem that I dial into (very seldom I must admit),
The recovery steps are:
1. I conect to the NT server and reach the LAN
2. ssh to the Linux (if Linux is not completely dead. of course)
3. recycle the VPN server
When done, I can then disconnect from the modem and use the standard VPN link.
The bottom line is: does Windows Server 2008 R2 support dial-in via modem.
I believe my request is clear and precise and I would appreciated the sensible answer.
