Windows 2000 Pro Single Server Network
Posted on 2004-08-17
I need some help with setting up a small network for a classroom.
The environment i am trying to create is one where we have the following:
1)I want to setup a single server network, windows 2000 Pro as the server OS, along with about 10 clients , these will have windows 2000 installed..
2)The computers will not be more than 20ft apart
3)Windows 2000 Pro Server Software & 2000 client software
4)Special Requirements will be Data storage on server
7)Fault tolerance where i would like to put 2 Hdrives in the server and have the main drive mirrored at all times etc
8)All the systems will be built and OS`s , hardware will all be installed.
9)I would like to add users, and have it setup so that those of choice can access the internet/data/use applications
10) Shared printing
11) Active Directory Setup for user Permissions for drives/folders
The server will have internet access so I would like some help to know how to setup 2 network cards for the server where 1 will access the internet and the other card will provide internet access to the Lan so that all other computers can have internet access also..
With the server they must be Fault tolerance where information can mirrored etc.
A printer will be added to this network for clients to print..
I know my way around computers so those tech words won`t matter, fire away..
I hope this gives an idea of what i`m looking to do and the areas i need assistance in (basically all).
I basically do not know how to setup windows 2000 Pro so that i can have an network environment where i i add users, have them loggon, access netowrk resources and I do not know how to setup the server to provide internet access to the client computers ..
any help would be grateful, thx
