access website on intranet from home?

By Savon19 ·
Win NT server 4.5 at work (IIS)... I set up so I can use Front Page to access/edit our website from work.

Is there a way I can access from home? I can access Exchange Server from home... ?

Thanks,
Sherry

Need to have a VPN setup for broadband access or you could dialup into the network. Depends on what solutions your company has setup. Just need a way to get beyond the company firewall.

We DO have external (hardware) firewall... so this may be a problem.

Howdy,

There are several ways to access the network from hoe. NT4 Server can be configured to allow it to be reached by direct dial in or through the internet. IIS too can be configured to allow remote access for publishing and such. To actually help you set up a working system, more info is required . . .

Yes.
For Dial In:
The subject you want to look at is called RAS.
(Remote Access Server)
For Internet:
VPN (Virtual Private Network)
(Tunneling.)
I assume you have the manuals that came with NT, and the Resource Kit.
There is a 1960 characterlimit on answers, so the manuals are the place to start.

...Actually, this helped a bit (sorry, I'm a novice in this area). Which is Better? RAS or VPN?? (Assuming both are possible.)

Thanks.

Howdy,

Well, physical layout is pertinent. Where is the server in relation to the internet? Does the intranet connect to the internet already? This is needed to use a VPN. Does the server have a modem? This is needed to use dial-in. The dial-in method uses potentially two phone lines, while the VPN will use whatever internet connection available at each end. IIS will require the Front Page Extensions installed and configured for publishing. Do people publish to the website from workstations already? Exchange server is a matter of configuration, which is certainly in the documentation that comes with it . . .

Hope this helps to clarify some of the many details.

Since you will be accessing the site from your home, the first question is, what sort of connection do you have at your house.

If you have DSL, Cable MODEM, or ISDN with a fixed IP address in your house, then there is no question, VPN is the answer.

If it's a low bucks operation, with a small company, and you have POTS, (Plain Old Telephone Service) , (Dial Up) at home, then most of them still use RAS.

Ok! You want to edit your website. Where is your website.

If your website is on the internet you should be able to login and edit it from anywhere you can view it. As long as you have the username and password.

More information and we can help.
