I have been given a box at work to fool around with.
I will use it to install 2003 Server.
I was told not to take the box home, but that I could dial into it somehow.

I will be creating my own domain at work independant of other domains on the network at work, although I can plug into the network to get internet access...

a)
What is the technology / procedure to be able to remote into my computer from home.

b)
Do I need a unique static computer address to be able to achieve this?


Thanks,
Kam

Is the easy way. The computer just needs to be on the internet

Or you can use remote desktop to get in.  You would either need to forward port 3389, or VPN into the network to get it to come up.

The RDP is probally the best idea considering the IT dept probally would not to make make a port forawrd for a VPN server to that machine, which is done on port 1723.  If you right click on my computer on the server and select properties goto the remote tab.  Then check the box for acept remote login.  Keep in mind that only ADMIN accounts can use this feautre by default, and with server 2k3 you can only have two instances of RDP running without going throught the expense of getting TS liscences.

That is why logmein.com is so nice. No ports to forward, no VPN settings, no firewall issues.
