I have Setup a Win2000 Server.
Have installed the Terminal Services Licences.
I am not using the Server as an Internal Network Server.

All clients using the Server, will be connection via Terminal Services. (Which i have registered. 5 Licences)
I have a fixed IP Address  say (203.44.44.44)

At the moment i have the server connected to the Internet via A Modem Line...(later via ADSL)


Would appreciate some help as to the best way to set up the server, to cater for the above. (Step by step rather than a general comment would be appreciated), as this is my first Win2000 Server Install.Would like to get i right 1st up!!


Regards  Turnermich

-best way to setup the server in terms of what ?
-security, configuration, client settings ?

Security= Inbound connections use tcp port 3398
-you might want to setup tcp filtering to specify access to only port 3398.
-If you want a heavier & tested true filtering option, you could use secpol.msc, right click on Ipsec policies & manage filter lists. The point is not so much to apply IPsec , but to have the server drop all incoming requests except for port 3398.

Configuration & client settings
-If a users profile shows allow terminal server access..they can login.
-Open terminal server configuration in administrative tools & right click on RDP (remote desktop protocol), you will see several options. I suggest allowing users to have user & guest access & not full control.

-So you have a pots modem.
-Create a new connection in my network places & then choose the third option (manually connect). Enter your ISP phone number etc..

1. How to set up for the internet. ie  Ip address etc.
-The IP address is what ever IP address your ISP assigns the server. This is what clients connect to.

2. How do 5 Terminal services clients log in. Does W2000 Server generate 5 Different ip numbers for
them to log in etc

-The server does not assign IP addresses to client computers... Think of it like connecting to a web site..
-You connect to the internet.. You put in the host name or IP address of the TServer in the TSclient & connect..

I allready have the server connected to the Internet via dial up connection, and it is working fine.

I need to know how to set up the server to allow Terminal server clients to log in.

Set up ip address  etc.
For testing i am connecting via my modem.
There does not seem to be any winipcfg to find out my current ip??

-Type ipconfig.. Note the IP address.
-From the client station open terminal server client & enter the IP.. Make sure the local user account exists & has permission to login to terminal server.. You might want to try with administrator if you're not sure about the credentials part yet.

-If you open terminal server configuration in administrative tools & right click the RDP, one of the tabs is network adaptors... By default terminal server listens on all network adaptors..but you can specify which nic it listens on.
