Moved my server to another location with new router, ip etc..... The new IP address that the Server 2000 is getting is 192.168.241.8.  I run NO-IP.ORG to keep track of the ip address - although now it is set to a static ip.  I did a port forward from 192.168.241.8 Port 3389.  What changes do I need to make on my server so that people can log on remotely.  Thanks!

192.168.241.8  is your local address and cannot be accessed by outside. Go to whatsmyip.com and use that ip and port you have. you have to use your external ip not local

Use the external ip and port 3389? No-IP picks up the external IP address and gets to the router and then can not connect to server.  I have always set up Server and router with internal ip - but when I use remote access I use the external ip.  Not sure what you mean?

ok 192.168.241.0 - 255

those ips are local and assigned by your router.

What you need to to is setup an open port 3389 on your router for the server

then for people to access you they have to use your external address for example 66.66.66.128 is lets say my external address which I use to access internet, now for people to access my server I would have them go to:

http://66.66.66.128:3389

now if I had port 3389 open they would access with no problem? make sense?

I suggest you use port 80 or 8080

What ip address do I use with port 3389 on the router settings?  Do I set up an ip address on the server that does NOT fall in the range 192.168.241.0-255?

You can use 192.168.241.0 on the server if the server is behind router or you could put it in front but in most cases its behind.

so now go to your router setting and allow ports.

Allow port 3389

now on server make your server accept connections on port 3389

so what happens is now when somebody requests your routers external ip which is lets say 66.66.66.82 on port 3389

router will allow that connection to go thru and then your server will pick it up

hope that makes sense

Ok, I'm kinda of getting what you are saying but slightly confused.  I have DSL coming out of wall into Modem then router - from Router to a generic switch to my server.  If I set my servers IP to 192.168.241.0 and on router open up port 3389 to that IP address - then when someone types in my external IP it will pick up the server?  And if I use 192.168.241.0 how will the server pick up the internet
