Whta's the best way to intergrate W2KAS

By mauiduck ·
Aloha!

Query: I have one server in our main office
that is running W2KAS as a web
server/NAT that also serves as a file
server for the LAN. I am setting up an
exiting Netware 4.12 server at the other
office and will change it's context.I'd like
to create a demand-dial-up VPN between
the two servers (This office has DSL
loving, but the Napili one is 56K dial ****)
Any advice on the best way to have the
two servers inergrate with each other and
allow the users to see network resources
and objects? (i.e gateway for NT?) This is
a big one so I really could use anybody's
experience and/or advice.

Mahalo in advance
Angus

Netware 4.1x no longer supported by Novell and 4.2 will be in the same boat soon. A competitive upgrade from Novell to W2k is less than half the cost of upgrading to Netware 5.x. So, the best path is to upgrade the Netare box to W2k server and per seat clients. Then RRAS dial on demand will fill your needs. Get the Novell end-of-life document and quotes on upgrades. Your boss will love the money you're saving, and you won't have to admin two separate NOSs.

Ok, if you really must keep the netware server, you will need to install a Windows 2000 Server at the same site as the NW4x box. The W2K Svr will handle the dial-up and routing, and you can even us the Microsoft VPN to secure trafic between the sights. AT the site with both servers, install the support for UNIX on both servers. (NFS file access and LPD/LPR printing.) This gives the machines a common interface betweeb them.

I know of no MS, Novell, or third party products that allow NW4.x and Win2K boxes to dial on demand and pass file and print services through to each client in its native mode.

keeping the Novell server is going to be expensive.
