I have a two server environment with one server running sbs 2k3 r2 and the other running 2k3 server standard.  the standard is going to be running term services, but when i try and get to the share folder on the sbs machine it tells me that i can't find it, but its in the list for my domain.  

I have demoted that computer to a workgroup and tried the server/connectcomputer, but when it supposed to run the activex, the page has an error, and when i look at it, it says "permission denied"

Please help

You need to connect the server to the domain network. Instead of connect to you may do the following:

1. on the SBS in Active Directory Users and Computer create a new server somewhere with the name you want to give to the new server.
2. then on the new server right-click my computer --> properties
3. go to the naming tab and click on the "change" button.
4. follow the instuctions. You'll need the administrator account to do this.
5. once it is succesful log in to the computer using the domain account instead of the local server account.
6. Make sure your server share has sets up permission for whatever account you've logged on with (so for instance administrator@domain make sure it is in the share list).

Be careful when doing this because I may have ommited a step and do the research if you come accross something you're unsure of.

This does about the same thing as the connect to. The wizard is handy but not vital.

Good luck.

Are you able to ping both ways. The default installation of W2k3 is to turn on the firewall at a very restrictive level.
