Remote Access Server Role
What is a Remote Access Server?
The Remote Access Server Role in Windows server operating systems provides services for remote user support via VPN or DirectAccess, routing, and publishing HTTP(S)-based applications outside the corporate network. These services offer logging that can monitor network activity and debug logging for troubleshooting connectivity issues.
- In the world of NXLog
In many cases, Microsoft’s RRAS server is a critical point of a corporate network. As its role is to enable people to access a network remotely, it is a rather important service from a security perspective. RRAS creates several different types of logs that are present in various places, log files, in a database, in Windows Event Log, and through Event Tracing providers. NXLog can collect these logs, and the methods are described in a comprehensive integration topic in the Microsoft Routing and Remote Access Service (RRAS) section of the NXLog documentation.
