Remote Access Servers

What is a Remote Access Server?

Remote Access Servers, or RAF for short, are what we call the things that allow remote access tools to work. RAFs can be made up of a combination of hardware or software. Remote Access Servers bring several communication pieces together into a single group. All the computers hooked up to remote access servers can access some centralized program or even a central operation system. This can all be done virtually.

Remote Access Servers are used when multiple users need remote access but are not linked up on a Local Area Network, or LAN. Every user can access files remotely and also print, as well as other functions.
