I, have a MS2000 Small Business Server with about 15 users on site. I'm about to open another site about 20 miles from my current site. How can I, connect 15 user at the new site to the MS 2000 SBS at the old? Also I, can't get DSL or cable connection in either area and T1 line would cost to much, I'm currently using a 56k dailup connection. What can I do?

terminal services is your best bet for low bandwidth. dont like your chances with 15 users though.

how about ISDN ?

Here is what you need to do. As you do not have a high speed connection for your sites you need to put in another SBS box at the new site and have the 2 sites replicate the active directory together.

File sharing is not an option due to the low speed of the link. and Terminal services is ok for a few users but 15 is over the top for dial up.

30 users works ok with terminal serivices if you have a real good server (Dual PIII 1400 or better)

i didnt think you could replicate SBS perhaps I am wrong in this assumption.

Well you are not supposed to, but it can be done. The only other real answere is to get ISDN installed right away, and set up terminal services also.

The way to set up SBS at both locations is to have them as separate domains (they can share the registered domain name, and have them replicate the active directory with each other.
