The Sun ras terfile format is an old image file format that is no longer all that common. Many image processing programs are capable of reading this format, however, so it can generally be used on most platforms.
Remote Access Servers
Remote Access Services. See RADIUS Client.
This is a general term for any server that offers remote access to a network over phone line, WAN link, or even over a LAN.
The suite of messages between H.323 endpoints and H.323 gatekeepers. The messages are made up of Requests (xRQ), Confirmations (xCF), and Rejections (xRJ). The "x" letter denotes the type of messages, including Admission, Registration, Bandwidth, and Disconnect.
Traces the state transition of the RAS state machine on the basis of the processed events.
Registration, Admission, and Status. A protocol that is used between endpoints and the gatekeeper to perform management functions. The RAS signaling function performs registration, admissions, bandwidth changes, status, and disengage procedures between the Voice over IP (VoIP) gateway and the gatekeeper.
Acronym for Remote Access Service, a Microsoft operating system service that enables dial-up connectivity.
Remote Access Server. A server usually located near subscribers sites that handles subscribers access to the Internet through an ISP. Also see ISP and PoP.
(Remote Access Services) a component of Windows NT that allows a user to connect to a LAN using a modem, WAN link, or X.25 connection.
Remote Access Service. A service that can be used by remote clients running Microsoft Dial-Up Networking, all Microsoft RAS clients, or any third-party PPP client to dial in to a network. Remote users with RAS on a Windows NTâ€“based computer can dial in to their networks for services such as Internet access, file and printer sharing, electronic mail, scheduling, and SQL database access.
Remote Access Server. RAS enables access to a computer or a network from a remote distance using a dial-up connection over regular telephone lines or mobile networks.
Remote access server. A server residing at an ISP network to provide tunneling capability from a remote user to the corporate network. See also L2TP, LAC, LNS, TMS, VPN.
Remote Access Service. On a local area network, a host that is equipped with modems to enable users to connect to the network over telephone lines. Works with dial-up networking to allow one computer to connect to another through a modem to access shared resources, such as drives or files.

Remote Access Server, a dial-in service.
See definition for: Remote Access Service (RAS)
A protein involved in signal transduction.
A service provided by Windows Dial-Up Networking to establish a network connection with another computer via modem.
Remote Access Server. A device which enables external devices to access network facilities. The RAS will generally be equipped with analogue modems and/or ISDN terminal adapters to enable remote users to “dial-in”. The RAS will incorporate security features including password control, dial back, CLI recognition and hardware handshaking.
A management protocol between terminals and Gatekeepers.
Remote Access Service. A service that allows remote clients running Microsoft Windows to dial-in to a network. See also dial-up.
An acronym for Remote access service. Now known as Dial-Up Networking (DUN), provides remote access to networks. DUN allows a remote user to access his network. Once connected, it is as if the remote computer is logically on the network; the user can do anything that he could do when physically connected to the network.
A feature built into Windows NT that enables users to log into an NT-based LAN using a modem, X.25 connection or WAN link. RAS works with several major network protocols, including TCP/IP, IPX, and NetBEUI.
Remote Access Service refers to the ability to dial into another computer or network remotely. In the context of WinRoute, RAS simply refers to a dial-up connection.
A RAS (Remote Access Server) can be attached to a LAN to allow dial-up connectivity from other LANs or individual users.
Remote Access Services, which allows dial-up access to the Getronics network, but is more limited than VPN access. More details
Remote Access Server - a server that accepts dial-in connections.
Remote Access Service (RAS) is a service that runs on a computer that is responsible for dealing with requests from remote users to access a LAN.
H.225 Registration, Admission, and Status protocol. Protocol that is used between endpoints and the gatekeeper to perform management functions. The RAS signaling function performs registration, admissions, bandwidth changes, status, and disengagement procedures between the VoIP gateway and the gatekeeper.
REMOTE ACCESS SOLUTION. Industry term used to describe dial-up service; facilitates network connections to an enterprise local-area or wide-area network from users remotely accessing the network over cable or telephone lines using a modem.
Remote access is the ability to get access to a computer or a network from a remote distance.
A protocol for Registration, Admission and Status. In an H.322 audio or video system, the RAS is a control channel over which H.225.0 signaling messages are sent.
Remote Access Service. This service allows users running the Windows operating system to remotely access a network from their system using a modem.
A server that allows access to various arranged computers through modems.
Row Address Select (or Strobe): a control pin on a DRAM used to latch and activate a row address. The row selected on a DRAM is determined by the data present at the address pins when RAS becomes active.
Windows NT Remote Access Service. This Windows 95 and NT service, when configured correctly, allows your computer to connect to your ISP via a modem. You set this up in Dial-Up Networking.
(Remote Access Server) Hardware which remote users dial-in to, to gain access to a particular service or resource.
A service that enables other computers to remotely connect to a Microsoft Windows NT computer.
(Remote Access Server) A server that is dedicated to handling users that are not on a LAN but need remote access to it. The remote access server allows users to gain access to files and print services on the LAN from a remote location. For example, a user who dials into a network from home using an analog modem or an ISDN connection will dial into a remote access server. Once the user is authenticated he can access shared drives and printers as if he were physically connected to the office LAN.
Remote Access Server. A server with modems that also users to connect to the network using phone lines.
Windows NT/2000 has a module called Remote Access Services. It allows people to call in via a remote phone line and work on the server as if they were on the LAN. (See Telecommuting)
Registration, Admission, Status. Protocol used in the H.323 protocol suite for discovering and interacting with a Gatekeeper.
Remote Access Service. A computer in a network that provides access to remote users through dial-up lines. Provided with Microsoft Windows NT.
Remote Access Service: Microsoft's utility for connecting computers over dial-up lines or for connecting laptops.
Remote Access Service (RAS) - Allows support personnel at a remote location to perform system maintenance.
In molecular biology, Ras is the name of a protein, the gene that encodes it, and the family and superfamily of proteins to which it belongs. Proteins in the Ras family are very important molecular switches for a wide variety of signal pathways that control such processes as cytoskeletal integrity, proliferation, cell adhesion, apoptosis, and cell migration. Ras and ras-related proteins are often deregulated in cancers, leading to increased invasion and metastasis, and decreased apoptosis.
