    I have a Windows 2000 Server in my home office. Two people need to access this server remotely.
    What can I do so these two people can gain access to files that reside on the 2000 Server?

    I once had a static ip address that enabled the two users to gain access to the server.

    Thank you for looking.

    The simplest way is to configure an FTP server on the server. That doesn't require any special handling. If you don't have a static IP address, you can use DynDNS or a similar service to map your dynamic IP address to a static URL.

    Thanks John.

    I will read up on it.

    Is DynDNS a secure solution?

    Thanks again.

    DynDNS is just a URL redirection capability, it has no effect on your security. Your server already has FTP capability, you just need to configure it.
