Remote Access Service (RAS)


Remote Access Service (RAS) connects a client to a host computer, known as a remote access server. A Windows Mobile device running RAS connects to a remote access server using PPP. PPP is a set of industry standard framing and authentication protocols that enable remote access. Windows Mobile can connect to a remote access server using direct serial and infrared as well as dial-up.
