What is Remote Access Admin?

An administrative tool in Microsoft Windows NT for managing and configuring the Remote Access Service (RAS) on servers running Windows NT.

You can use this tool to:

  • Connect to a RAS server to administer it
  • Stop, start, and pause RAS on the server
  • Grant permission to users to dial in to the network using RAS and specify callback settings
  • Monitor, send messages to, and disconnect active RAS users

The corresponding tool for administering remote access on the Windows 2000 Server platform is the Routing and Remote Access console.


You can also grant a user permission to dial in to your network through RAS by using User Manager for Domains. Access the user’s properties and click the Dialin button.
