Overview/Description Target Audience Prerequisites Expected Duration Lesson Objectives Course Number Overview/Description
Routing services and protocols are vital for maintaining secure and efficient communication in a network infrastructure. Windows Server 2008 provides key services including routing, remote access, and support for TCP/IP and security protocols. Windows Server 2008 can act as a router providing static IPv4 and IPv6 routing to remote networks and can provide dynamic routing through the support of routing protocols such as Routing Information Protocol (RIP). Another key IP service is the IP security protocol (IPSec), which offers essential security capabilities in Windows Server 2008 by providing improved authentication and cryptographic support, and by being closely integrated with the Windows Firewall and Advanced Security feature, Network Access Protection, and Active Directory Group Policy.
