      Windows Resource Kit Tools include two components that work as part of Windows Server 2003 Network Access Quarantine Control: RQS and Remote Access Quarantine Client (RQC). RQS works on the remote access server as a listener component. It informs the remote access server when a client can be taken out of quarantine mode. RQC works on the remote access client as a notification component. It verifies to the listener component that the remote access client has met network requirements.
