Dial-up Client for Windows

The Dial-up Client for Windows component provides the infrastructure necessary to implement a Remote Access Service (RAS) client. The Remote Access Service client allows a computer to connect to a remote network over a wide area network (WAN) or a virtual private network (VPN). The client computer then functions on the server's local area network (LAN) as though the remote computer was connected to the LAN directly.


The Dial-up Client for Windows component will launch the Remote Access Connection Manager service, which is used to manage and display the status of active connections.

Associated Components
