Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I am trying to set up transactional replication between 2 servers that can only see each other via IP address and are in different domains.

I am trying to use FTP to do this but I am having trouble finding any information on how to do this?

Does anyone have a guide on how to do this as I am a novice on this subject

Thanks for your help so far.

I'm in the process of reading that article. Would I be better moving to 2005 [which is a possibility] i.e. would this scenario be easier to implement/fix by using SQL 2005?
