    I just installed server 2000 on my machine. I was wondering if someone could tell where I could get instructions on how to use the software. I would like to setup a server so that my brother-in-law can access my server from maryland obviously through the internet.

    I need instructions how to set up the software etc. Can anyone help me out?

    Howdy Jayj...

    What kind of access do you want to give your brother in law?

    FTP, Web access, VPN etc...

    I have yahoo dsl. That article looks like it will give me a good start. Then in order for him to access I would have to create an account for him, correct. I have never set up a server before so this is good practice for my schooling I am taking as well. Do you know of any other sites that have good information of how to use server 2000. I appreciate your help.

    Does your DSL modem act as a router?

    Because you may have to foward some ports to the server...

    Depends...What else do you want to use it for...

    Don't remember setting up an access account on my web server, I think that would be handled by the webpage (not sure on that though, there may be a way to setup an access account, just haven't looked)...

    I have a wireless router that plugs into my dsl modem.

    Basically we want to set up a web server for some experiments. He needs to be able to make changes to the web pages etc that we create. I just thought he would need an account to have this type access. Also where does nat come into play to change my local ip into a internet ip that he can access. Or was this discussed in the link you sent me.

    Ahhh...

    The plot thickens :D...

    It would be easier to setup a web and FTP server for this...

    I use Filezilla FTP server http://filezilla.sourceforge.net/ ( it's actually easier and faster and more realible than trying to fight with 2000 server's ftp server, and free )...

    Where NAT comes into play you will need to log into the wireless router and use port forwarding to forward the ports to the web server and the FTP server (after you get them set up )...

    You don't really need an account for the website but you will need one for the FTP server...

    IMHO what you'll need to do is to setup the web server, and FTP server, your brother in law can download the web pages make changes, then upload them to the server via FTP...
