I am setting up a network - 16 users. The network needs a file server. Can I set up a win 2000 server box as a file server in an workgroup enviroment or is it necessary to use a domain environment. I know the advantages of the domain but the client doesn't want the hassle of user names and passwords and administration. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi there,

Yes you can run windows 2000 server in a peer to peer workgroup environment - It's pretty straightforward. So long as the client understands fully about the security implication it should be very simple:

Hope this helps
