Remote Access for Win2K on LAN

By jdclyde ·
My home LAN, I have three systems. All run win2k, fully patched.

I would like to be able to connect to each other without having to share out single folders AND without having to install third party software.

I store most files on computer upstairs, as it has the big drive, but use my laptop downstairs most of the time for actual work and play.

Can this be done, or do I HAVE to install the third party software?

Want to be able to copy files back and fourth, and if I could administer remotely too, that would be killer!

Yes, for those that don't know me, I have full physical access so can configure them as I need to, and have all the passwords.

yes you can. you need a VPN router like SonicWalls TZ 170 or Netgears or Linksys. you authenticate with the router which then provides you access just as if you were physically there.

Works just like Windows RRAS.

If your computers are in the same network (have the same network address like 192.168.1.x where x is computers address) you can use administrative sharing which is enable by default. You must know an user whith administrative privilege for that computer, run \\computer\C$ and authenticate with computer\user and password. You can use remote desktop connection from Microsoft. The same like windows XP use it.
