    Is this possible? Help needed...

    Dynamic IP's on SOHO router gear is basically static. They typically do not change. You can alter the lease or reservation if the router allows it. If you want to stay with a static IP then just make sure your forwarded correctly on the router to the port your using for your VPN traffic.

    Drive mapping issue

    Clients don't know, don't care, and are not affected by what type of partition/volume is on the other end. With that said, don't expect much of a response with such little information given. For instance, you said you couldn't get the nodes to connect. How so? Errors? Events in event...

    Setting up something in server 2003...not sure what its called.

    Actually if you read the OP you saw where he/she is trying to get user folder content availablity to that user. The question/recommendation, I assume, was suggesting just mapping a drive instead of going through the hassle of a website. The OP does not elaborate enough to make assumptions to...

    Setting up something in server 2003...not sure what its called.

    I would think you could use a Host header and build sites out for each share rather than a virtual directory. This would require CName records in DNS and for all I know it might not work. But logically I don't see a problem with that. Just never tried it. I may try it on a test server just...

    File sharing across 2 linksys routers?

    BS. It is a switch. Disabling DHCP and bypassing the WAN port makes the device a switch. Period

    File sharing question.

    Beyond disabling simple file sharing and locking down with NTFS permissions (The security tab on the folder, file or volume) you can also hide the shares for a bit more security. Just add $ to the end of the share.

    For those thinking of Virtualization

    Stay away from Dell Blade chassis unless they have gotten ALOT better. A few years ago and then again year ago we looked at them. We're a Dell shop with the physical servers. 1000 or so physical rack mounted Poweredges. Dell's Bladecenters were a joke comparited to the IBM's we went with...

    performance difference between dual port and single port?

    Router. In windows specifically to setup a RRAS servver with multiple segments. Any number of Linux distros and firewall/router apps that could utilize a multiport NIC. As long as the onboard processor was worthy, there'd be no performance hit. If the load is off'd to the box, then in theory...

    how does windows 2003 deal with multiple cpu's?

    If you want to assign specific CPU's to services, processes, exe's etc..., you can use Windows System Resource Manager. I have just been playing around with it in fact. Developer did a app upgrade and now one of the app's services just hammers cpu cycles. So his request was to dedicate...

    new question from an old dad

    Radmin is remote console program. Are you sure the kid that helped you didn't install this? If he did not, then you need to uninstall the application asap and get a decent firewall. If he did I'd be asking him why he compromised your network with an app like that. Perhaps there is a...

    Opensource replacement to VMware

    Errr, yes you will. See post above as to one of the reasons why. You still need the front end, the vehicle if you like. Host OS support makes the application and hypervisor run for lack of a perfect word, better. Now, you may have apps native to the OS. A package for your linux distro...

    Windows 2000 on new hardware, is it a good idea?

    Your concerned about paying for XP and asking about server 2003? You'd use 2003 drivers though XP drivers may work for some hardware. 2K3 is a server OS and is fairly expensive. Not really a choice for a home user everyday OS. As to the comment about a second core. OS sees dual core as...

    Windows 2000 on new hardware, is it a good idea?

    There is no reason to not run it. Other than perhaps driver support for newer hardware. If you don't want to pay for XP and don't have a copy and you do have a copy of 2000, then why not. Old software is not a legitimate reason. There may be a legitimate reason. Say for instance, you...

    One way recognation on home network?

    200 yd wireless shot....any ideas?

    11db is overkill for 200 yards. I would recommend removing any obstacles if possible and just going with something directional. If you have LOS then virtually any directed pattern will carry at that distance.

    WEP vs. WPA security

    WEP is better than nothing at all, since very few people would bother a WEP enabled WLAN when generally speaking there will be many others nearby that aren't secured at all. But for someone with the desire and tools it's pretty easy to bypass. There are, I believe, AP's that support both...
