Hi. Thank in advance for your help.

I have a pretty new network setup for the office, with a windows 2000 server and several other computers, one of which is a computer that contains everyone's files. We have one external public IP address we can use and we don't have any firewall software installed on windows 2000, I was wondering if it's possible to use windows 2000 server's default setup (i.e. clean installed, no other software) to configure the windows 2000 machine so that when I enter the external IP address from a home location, it allows one to access the computer on the network acting as the file repository. Thanks.

I would recommend you get some kinda firewall up and running asap. unless you're a fanatical patcher (and even if you are) you're massively exposed to loads of worms and other nasties out there....
