L2TP network server

While the L2TP access controller (LAC) accepts incoming client calls and initiates the tunnel from the remote side, the L2TP network server (LNS), which sits at the edge of the corporate network, terminates the remote tunnel, authenticates the remote clients according the corporate network policies, and allows access to network resources. The LNS is the logical endpoint of the Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) session being tunneled from the remote user through the LAC.
