Setting up a Small Win 2003 Network
Posted on 2006-05-15
I have been given the job to set up a small network for an engineering firm which only has 10 users and will consist of:
1 Win 2003 server with Dat Drive, UPS,
1 24 port switch
10 workstations (Win XP Pro)
5 Networked printers
I am new to Server 2003 and just want some tips on the easiest way to configure it to support the users. The server will also host a small web based database of the company’s products. The firm will need internet access and internal and external email.
The most difficult part for me will be setting up the user groups for the 3 departments and sharing the printers. The boss will need access to all folders and files and needs dialup access to the network. We have all the standard office software and Norton Antivirus.
All the equipment is brand new and the cabling, trunking, network points and patch panel are in place.
Thanks for any help, tips or links you can give me.
