4. The Test Environment
I have built a test environment as shown in the diagram. In the rest of the howto, the configurations of software are based on this topology.
A Windows 2003 R2 SP2 Server is set up as the AD domain controller, DNS server and WINS server. The pptp gateway is the Linux box which has 2 network cards. One connects to the internal network, 10.0.0.0/24, and the other one connects to the Internet with ip address 192.168.0.10/24. The internal network has two subnets, 10.0.0.0/24 and 172.16.0.0/24.
The domain name of the Windows AD domain is EXAMPLENET.ORG and the corresponding netbios name is EXAMPLE.
Windows Domain Summary:
|Domain Controller Name||dc1.examplenet.org|
|Domain Controller IP Address||10.0.0.1|
|DNS IP Address||10.0.0.1|
|WINS IP Address||10.0.0.1|
|AD Domain Name||examplenet.org|
|AD Netbios Domain Name||example|
Note: The Windows server that I used for FC4/5/6 testing was a Windows 2003 standard with SP1. In another word, the information presented in Appendix for FC 4, 5 and 6 is not tested for Windows 2003 R2 although I believe it should work.
