How can I configure my Microsoft Remote Installation Services (RIS) server to respond only to known clients?

A. By default, RIS servers respond to any client. To configure a RIS server to respond only to known computers, open the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) Active Directory Users and Computers, right-click the RIS server, and select Properties from the context menu, then select the Remote Install tab. Select the "Do not respond to unknown client computers" check box, as this figure shows, then click OK.
