RRAS Pickup configuration
Posted on 2004-03-23
I'm brand new to being a RAS administrator. A customer of mine has asked me to configure some things that calls for her w2k server to act as a RAS server. However, the line that is used for this is a non-dedicated line. She only wants it used for RRAS on off-hours. Am I current in understanding that although 'access' times and days is configurable in windows the actual "pickup" of the line is not. In fact, in other newsgroups everything I'm hearing is that one cannot have the modem simply not answer the phone during certain times or days. It either will or will not answer. Now, one can change how many rings. And of course windows will not allow 'access' to the Os if it’s configured not to. However, one can't have the modem simply answer.
The issue is, if live line is used how does one get the CPU or Os or RAS to not pick-up, let alone no authenticate the call DURING SPECIFIC TIMES OF THE DAY OR DAYS OF THE WEEK.
Like a regular business who needs to use a line during the day for business and then at night wants to use it for RAS administration.
