I have a multiple physcian office that I have inherited from a friend. I was not there for the initial configuration of the network. The network consists of a single 2003 Server box with 15 XP Pro clients. The server is an application server running an EMR application for the office staff. I was brought in due to a virus issue on the server which came from the Docs remotely accessing the Server, using MS Remote Desktop, and using it as a RAS. The virus was first found on the server in a folder that belongs to one of the docs. Needless to say this virus brought down the server and caused a complete work stoppage. I have told the docs that I think that they should go with a RAS seperate from the application server and they are willing to spend the money for this box. I would appreciate any information from anyone who has dealt with either a combined application and remote access box or two seperate boxes. I have my own ideas about what should be done, seperate RA and application servers, but I would appreciate any other information so I can do what would be best for the docs and their practice.
Thank you very much.
