RAS server basics

Can i have the basics of RAS (remote access service)?
The basic feature of RAS is to allow remote users to gain access to the network resources. RAS server authenticates remote users and based on the credentials supplied provides them with the access to network resources. If using NT systems, RAS comes as a service which can be installed and configured to use NT domain authentication to provide remote users with access to domain resources. For higher level of authentication levels RAS can be configured to use RADIUS/ACE Server/Digital Cert Authentications.
The basic configuration of a RAS consists of :
-Authentication Method & source(user data source)
-Single or Multiple domain Access
-Dial in & Dial out configuration
-Callback configuration
-Allowed Protocols
-Resource restrictions
-Auditing (user Tracking)& Time out for idle connections.
