Spring 2007 Cable Guy Articles Rollup

In my absence, I have missed the past few Cable Guy articles over at Technet:

June 2007 – The Secure Socket Tunneling Protocol

This article from TechNet Magazine describes how the Secure Socket Tunneling Protocol (SSTP) uses the HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP) over secure sockets layer (SSL) for remote access virtual private network (VPN) connections across network address translators (NATs), firewalls, and proxy servers.

May 2007 – EAPHost in Windows

This article from TechNet Magazine describes the new architecture in Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 (now in beta testing) to support Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) supplicants and authentication methods.

April 2007 – Wireless Group Policy Settings for Windows Vista

This article from TechNet Magazine describes the enhanced wireless Group Policy settings that are supported by wireless clients running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008.

I plan on testing out the SSTP (or SSL VPN) capability in Longhorn Server for a few people at the office who can’t use PPTP or L2TP VPN technologies.
