Setting up FrontPage Server Extensions remotely

Hi,

I was wondering if there's a way of running the FrontPage Server Extensions installation remotely.

When I attempt to do this using the iis console remotely and locally, I attemt to tick the "Install FrontPage Extensions" box under properties|Home Directory but when I choose 'save' and return to see my results, then the "Install Frontpage Extensions" box is unticked.

The only way I have found so far is to be sitting at the console of the server and running the FrontPage Extensions installation wizard locally.

Is there any way to run this wizard remotely ??

Possibly the use of a tool such as "Pc - Anywhere" may be successful, or setting up the server with Terminal Server.... however this last method causes some issues with service packs, as I am not sure of running sp6 with a  terminal server installation.

Does anyone know of a remote administration tool that I may be able to use that has the functionality of Pc-Anywhere ??? or similar?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Brendan Vowles

Hi Brendan,

There are many tools available.  

Pc-Anywhere is one of the better ones but the best one, in my opinion, is NetOp.  Also available is VNC and Remote Desktop.

I would recommend NetOp if you can get hold of it, if you want to go for a freebie program, go for VNC, it works but it can be a bit slow sometimes.  

You shouldn't experience any hassles with installing via a "remote terminal" type program.  I setup most of my servers via a "terminal" app.  Basically install the OS, put the server in the server room and work from my desk :)

Hope this helps

Regards

Craig
