RAS Server

If your users need remote access connectivity, they can connect to Microsoft Exchange Server by using a dedicated RAS server, or they can connect directly to a Windows NT Server computer, which provides both Microsoft Exchange Server and RAS connectivity.

To run Microsoft Exchange Server on a RAS server, you may need to add resources to compensate for the increased load. Generally, you should increase the processor speed and the amount of memory for every simultaneous connection you expect.
