The goal is to have the MS SQL 2000 web server database sync changes to another SQL 2000 server over the Internet.

So far I recieve the error:

"The replication agent is not registered properly. Rerun SQL Server setup. The step failed."

These are good articles and I've learned much, however I still don't understand how to actually connect to the remote (Publishing SQL) so I can PULL information back to my SQL Server.
