Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol: A tunneling protocol used to support virtual private networks (VPNs). It does not provide any encryption or confidentiality by itself; It relies on an encryption protocol that it passes within the tunnel to provide privacy.
Routing and Remote Access service: A network service in Microsoft Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2003, and Windows 2000 Server that provides the following services:
- Dial-up remote access server
- Virtual private network (VPN) remote access server
- Internet Protocol (IP) router for connecting subnets of a private network
- Network address translator (NAT) for connecting a private network to the Internet
- Dial-up and VPN site-to-site demand-dial router
Group Policy Preference Migration Tool: A command line application developed with version 3.0 of the .NET Framework. A user who has Domain Administrative Credentials can use GPPMIG to migrate PolicyMaker items to Group Policy Preference items into the same Group Policy object (GPO) or into a different GPO.
Performance Data Helper: A dynamic-link library (.dll) which simplifies collecting performance data from real-time data sources or performance counter log files. This component provides a level of abstraction over the performance registry interface to avoid directly extracting and formatting raw performance counter data from the performance data object blocks.
Transient Multimon Manager: A Microsoft Windows Vista operating system feature targeted at improving the user experience of connecting and disconnecting displays, particularly for the mobile user. Currently, although the Microsoft Windows operating system notifies the user of most hardware devices when it arrives, it does not do this consistently for displays. Windows is not aware of the arrival or removal of a display on a desktop system, and the user must manually set up and configure the display through the Windows display control panel or an IHV display UI. On a mobile system, the experience often involves cryptic function keys, a variety of user interface, and possibly reboots. It is particularly inconvenient with a transient display, a display that comes and goes, which is also unfortunately the most common scenario for mobile users.
Windows Remote Management: One component of the Windows Hardware Management features that manage server hardware locally and remotely. These features include a service that implements the WS-Management protocol, hardware diagnosis and control through baseboard management controllers (BMCs), and a COM API and scripting objects that allow you to write applications that communicate remotely through the WS-Management protocol.
Network Location Awareness: A service that enables Windows Sockets 2 applications to identify the logical network to which a Windows computer is attached. In addition, NLA enables Windows Sockets applications to identify to which physical network interface a given application has saved specific information. NLA is implemented as a generic Windows Sockets 2 Name Resolution service provider.
