remote access server
Last modified: Monday, August 05, 2002 

A server that is dedicated to handling users that are not on a LAN but need remote access to it. The remote access server allows users to gain access to files and print services on the LAN from a remote location. For example, a user who dials into a network from home using an analog modem or an ISDN connection will dial into a remote access server. Once the user is authenticated he can access shared drives and printers as if he were physically connected to the office LAN.

See the Server Types page in the Quick Reference section of Webopedia for a comparison of server types.
