I have another question that asks about this, but since I am not receiving any assistance, let me break them down into smaller questions.
We have inherited a Win Server 2003 and Terminal server. The small office is currently two networks, a wireless one (three wired connections) through a Bellsouth DSL modem, and one in the back where three computer are connected through cat 5. The wireless network is the 192.168.1.xxx network and uses dhcp. The one in back is 192.168.0.xxx, no dhcp. basic peer to peer with a pseudo server (win7) running peachtree complete and quickbooks, and two workstations that occassionally access win7 server and mostly work off of a NAS for the main accounting. Also have a HP Laserjet heavy duty printer connected. The wired network is on a different workgroup than wireless network. The two workstations in back also are connected to the wireless network, one by wireless, the other through a cat 5 run since wireless signal was flaky back there.
Now then the question. Since we now have the win server 2003, I imagine all that wish to connect to it will have to join the domain. One of the computers in back used to connect through vpn to the terminal server to do data entry. Can we still use vpn over the internal network for her to communicate, or do I have to now have her join the server domain to access the server directly. And if I do that, how will that affect my wired network in back of which she is attached?
Any suggestions as to how to proceed on this?
