How can I limit RAS callers to see only the machine they connect to rather than the whole network

A. When you configure the RAS server, you set for each protocol the scope of the connection, the server or the whole network. To change this perform the following:

  1. Start the Network Control Panel Applet (Right click on Network and select properties)
  2. Select the Service tab and select the Remote Access Service and click Properties
  3. Select the COM port and click the Network button
  4. Click the Configure button next to the protocol you wish to change access (e.g. TCP/IP)
  5. At the top check the "This computer only" option
  6. Click OK

Clients should now be able to only view local RAS server connections.
