Join Scott M Burrell for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should already know, part of Windows Server 2016: Remote Access Solutions.
- [Male Instructor] There are some things you should know as you prepare to begin this course on remote access solutions, some prerequisites if you will, that will help you better understand the solutions that are being provided. First and foremost I do expect that you have some background with Active Directory. Your ability to manage group policies and publish certificates is going to help in some of the later chapters of this course. Also not for the purpose of implementing these solutions in a production network but more in testing these theories out in contained lab environments.
You should be pretty familiar with your virtualization platform. Whether it's Hyper-V in Windows server, which is what's used throughout my demonstrations or some other platform, you'll need to be somewhat comfortable in creating and managing virtual switches, especially in creating complex topologies. As we go through this course we'll be creating a topology, much like you see here, with switches that are private, with switches that are connected to the outside world and, in one case, a switch that needs to look like it's part of the outside world but is not.
Finally you'll need some familiarity with IP version 6. Statically assigning addresses and setting up common IP services like DNS and DHCP. Some services in Windows work best with only IP version 4. Some services only work with IP version 6. So it's worth your time to become familiar with both. That's pretty much it. Let's go ahead and get started.
