Windows Dial-in

The Computing and Networking Infrastructure (CNI) group supports dial in through a Remote Access Server (RAS). The server has a total of 46 incoming lines available for general use. The lines are compatible with all modem speeds, including the V.90 standard for 56K baud modems. Here are a few important points to know for RAS use:

  • The phone number to connect to the RAS is: (757) 256-4000.
  • You will not be able to access any offsite systems when logged into the RAS. Our RAS access is for internal web page and system access only.
  • RAS also support ISDN connections.
  • The RAS will provide dial-in users with TCP/IP connections only. Users can use RAS to check their JLab email, browse internal web pages, and connect to central Unix systems.
