Hi All,

Windows Server 2008 RC0 and Vista SP1 beta has been released to our select TAP and techbeta customers (connecting via http://connect.microsoft.com/)

This is fantastic news for Microsoft remote access customers who wants to try out all the features in Windows server 2008 RRAS - like VPN NAP support that enables remote access client health-check before giving corpnet access, a full IPv6 support for remote access users (i.e. two scenarios - IPv6 over VPN tunnel, VPN tunnel over IPv6 Internet) and SSTP (a new VPN tunnel over SSL to provide firewall/NAT traversal to VPN connectivity).

To see RRAS step-by-step guides for VPN NAP and SSTP, please visit http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/network/bb545655.aspx

Here is the download information for WS08 RC0 - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/bb687945.aspx and Vista SP1 beta download information at http://windowsvistablog.com/blogs/windowsvista/archive/2007/09/24/sp1-beta-release-available-today.aspx

We would love to hear your feedback on RRAS

  • That is certainly a fantastic news. I have been using Windows serve 2003 and I'm looking forward for Windows Server 2008 standard edition.
