I am just new to this idea.  I will be going out of town and want to be able to remotely adminster my 2003 server if needed.  I'm going to follow the instructions that I have...  but the only thing I can't find is how to actually connect to the server.  Do I do it through our website, or,
how?   I'm embarrassed to even ask.

Thanks.

Oh - maybe I should mention that I will do it through Terminal Services.

Assuming that the Terminal Services client is installed o the machine you will be connecting from you simply need to plug in the IP address (or Domain name if you have one) of the machine that is accessible from where you are.

Once you are connected it's just like sitting at the console (with minor differences).

Don't forget to open your 3389 port and check your machine. The control of your machine is only a password away from anybody....
