This month I’ll provide guidance for optimizing the protocol support and security for VPN in Windows Server 2012 R2.
Windows Server 2012 R2 provides support for secure client-based remote access VPN connections as part of the Routing and Remote Access Services (RRAS). Client-based VPN is very mature in Windows, originally introduced with Windows 2000 Server and also as a downloadable option for Windows NT 4.0. Today, RRAS has broad client support with secure and robust VPN protocols such as IKEv2 and SSTP, while at the same time maintaining support for legacy VPN protocols such as L2TP/IPsec and PPTP.
Security in the cloud can be complicated. It doesn’t have to be though. Have a look at Microsoft’s new Azure Security Center.
In this article I’ll explore 5 important configuration settings not available in the GUI and demonstrate how to view and change them using VBScript and PowerShell.
In this article I’ll demonstrate how to create and prepare an SQL server virtual machine hosted in Microsoft Azure for TMG logging.
