i have laptop with windows 2000. I usually connect to remote database server using VPN since i am not on their network. i connect to VPN server first and then login to database server.
VPN server have issues and will be down for a while.
I need to go to a local site that is on the server LAN.
Would i be able to take my laptop and connect it to ethernet connection and log in directly.
I normally log in to laptop locally and not to a network. How would this work now.
I expect after i connect cable to their LAN to see windows domain and a login window.
would I see that or i need some special client software or setup for this.
can you advise?
I assume i would need a network account too in order to connect to the LAN too.
