Preparing a Site System for a Non-SNA RAS Sender


Before creating any of the three types of non-SNA RAS senders (Asynchronous, ISDN, or X25) on a site system, make sure that the site system is configured correctly. To do so, use Windows NT administration tools to complete the following procedures. For detailed information about the steps and terms in this procedure, see your Windows NT Server product documentation.

  1. Make sure that Microsoft Windows NT RAS software is installed on a site system in the current site and in all destination sites (the site systems on which RAS software is installed are RAS servers).
  2. On the RAS servers where you will install the RAS sender, create RAS phone book entries for the RAS servers at each destination site.
  3. The types of phone book entries determine the types of senders and sender addresses you create. For example, if you create an ISDN phone book entry for a destination site, you must create an ISDN RAS Sender address and an ISDN RAS Sender on the RAS server.

  4. At each destination site, create a user account that the RAS sender on the current site can use.
  5. In RAS Administrator, grant the account Dial in and Dial out permissions.

After preparing the site system for the sender, you can create a sender on the site system.
