Turn-off Remote Access

I have little to know experience with managing a remote access server. Yet I've been thrown into the middle of doing just that. Whats the surest way of simplying "turning off" the capability? going to 'services' in control panel and stopping it and then changing the boot to 'disable". I ask because when its installed the first time, what happens.  Are some files loaded that weren't before? Or.......is the service simply turned on and then the guy is designed to walk you through a configuration.  Again, I want to simply not have the ability of having a remote access server............until further notice.

Indeed. Without the remote access service, there will be no remote access. Make sure to shut doewn and disable the telnet service also (if enabled at all)

Open the RAS manager, right click on your server and select "disable routing and remote access" beware tho that this will clear the configuration as well and you will need to reconfigure it the next time you want to use it.

To simply stop it from working, set the service to disabled and stop it.
