Remote Access can be installed using the Add Roles and Features Wizard. The server role groups together three technologies involved in network access: the Routing and Remote Access Service, DirectAccess and Web Application Proxy.
- Routing and Remote Access Service - uses a virtual private network (VPN) to support connectivity.
- DirectAccess - allows remote end users within an organization secure access to files, documents and other resources without the needing a VPN.
- Web Application Proxy - supports end users' access to applications from outside of a corporate network by using reverse proxy authentication.
