Native Windows Remote Access

Easy remote access for employees.

Windows has integrated options for securely connecting a client to a remote end point. Astaro can act as a receiver for this feature to enable users to create tunnels quickly. For environments that seek a user-friendly VPN technology, this type of tunnel can be deployed easily while still offering encrypted links with full control over what can be accessed once the connection is established.

This type of VPN deployment is aimed at companies who are required to provide remote access connectivity for users, but need to keep the following issues in mind: budget, deployment process and error free operation. Through this application, external workers can enjoy the comforts of the office environment through secure access to file shares, printers and email.

Using L2TP or PPTP, users can authenticate and build a secure tunnel to any Astaro installation in moments using the client tools already included in their Windows operating system. Administrators can set what is accessed by the entire VPN group, individual users, or a mixture of both, such as allowing all VPN users to access the file share, then allowing only John Doe to use remote desktop to his workstation in the office.

 

Astaro offers secure and easy to use Remote Access technologies for connecting mobile users via native Windows clients to their corporate network via the following protocols:

  • PPTP (Point-To-Point Tunneling Protocol)
    • Supports strong encryption (128 bit)
    • Local or RADIUS based user authentication
    • Authentication protocols: MSCHAPv2
    • IP Address assignment via pool network or DHCP server
    • Supports native Windows and Apple iPhone client
  • L2TP (Layer-2-Tunneling Protocol) over IPSec
    • Authentication via pre-shared key or X.509 certificate
    • Local or RADIUS based user authentication
    • Authentication protocols: PAP, CHAP, MSCHAP, MSCHAPv2
    • IP Address assignment via pool network or DHCP server
    • Supports native Windows and Apple iPhone client

This feature is included within the free Essential Firewall Edition.
