Will Windows2000 Server do what we need?
Posted on 2002-05-17
We want to get a server for our 8-user office. We’re looking at a Windows2000 Server from Dell. I don't know if Server by itself will do what we need or if we need to get other components.
Our users need to share dial-up Internet access.
Each user has Outlook and wants to send & receive email
We don’t care about local email.
Our users need to send faxes from their workstation
I have two biases – (1) I used an early version of Small Business Server and ran into a lot of gotchas and configuration problems and (2) I’m intimidated by Exchange.
If either SBS or Exchange is the only way to do what we need, then I’ll bite the bullet. But if there are other options I’d like to look at those first.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
