What are the steps to log into my server runing win2k advanced server remotely from home?
I run winxp pro at home, the router at work is configured for dhcp, I have admin acount on server, I know my domain name and ip address scheme, server ip etc..
router provided by service provider and configured by them, i don't know if we are behind a fire wall or NAT (Please comments on this)
when a service provider company sets up a t-1 line and provide a router with it, are they supposed to relese all router configuration information to nt admin?
lastly do i need info about router runing configuration info to do remote login?
what information is the router provider supposed to give nt admin?

thanks!

Generally speaking depending on who your ISP is. You will be behind there firewall which isn't much. I would really suggest investing in a hardware firewall. Sonic makes a fairly inexpensive one and it can also include VPN technology.

Again generally speaking you're not going to be able to log into your network remotely without a VPN or Dial-up connection to you're network.

I would personally pressure the ISP to give you the router info and passwords. It's nice to have if for no otherreason they set it to be something strange and that person quites.

Going back to what your main question is logging in remotely. Your best bet is to invest in a VPN. That way users that have high speed internet access can use it instead of dialing in.

Here are some links for you to look at..

(Ebay can be much cheaper just watch the licenses and consider the support options..)

Hi
Realy you do not need the ISP to go to your server.
Install and configure RAS in your w2k server to give you access, then add DUN in your home WS.


Good luck

Hello,
As you will have found out, both answers 1 & 2 are correct and practical, the method you choose to adapt will depend on the speed practicalities and your technical competence with VPN set-ups.

The first answer is more technically challenging, but also provides a higher speed link to your server.

The second answer has the benefits of no eaves droppers on your connection, but at slow speeds.

Am not providing you with anything new here, but hope it helps your decision making.

Regards,
J
