SBS 2003/2008 - OVERALL QUERY REGARDING CLIENTS AT HOME OR ANY GEOGRAPHIC POSITION

Hi I wish to know that when a client logs on from home, to their companies Windows 2003 or 2008 OS, for a 'small or even medium bussiness' then the most popular or only options available are:

- Wireless
- Wired
- VPN/RRAS
- Dial-up
- Direct Access
- ISDN - Although this is no really popular no more due to ADSL/SDSL links

Unless obviously a customer has all the required CPE type equipment in place at home already then they could use other Technologies.

The connection technology (those that you listed) used at client location does not really come into play.  As long as they are able to connect to Internet, and get an IP address, then they will be able to connect to the office SBS system using the public name (e.g. remote.yourcompany.com).

How so as I thought when remote for eg a user would create a 'VPN' on client host pc as normal inputting relevant details in order to logon & same for Wireless for eg?

VPN is one way (and one of the more involved) to remotely connect.  If you have SBS, preferred options are Remote Web Workplace (RWW) to connect to user's desktop, Outlook Web Access (OWA) to read email, or Connect to SBS for VPN access (greatly simplified over manually creating VPN connection).  Use the SBS wizards and look at the SBS help docs - they're all fairly straightforward.

What about a user logging into his domain from home to carryout his normal working routines?

THAT is what I'm describing, and what you are presumably asking.  Once you run the SBS wizard to enable remote access (as well as configure your firewall/router), your users will be able to login remotely using their domain credentials.

Hi ChiefTechGuru,  My apologies I mean what about if Im not using SBS at all and the company is using Win 2003/2008 Standard/Enterprise OS?

Im aware I would setup RRAS on a server but separate from the Domain apparantely and then I would select VPN/NAT/Dialup or whatever and obviously ensure that the user is part of this group for these types of users!

Im assuming I would then once connected to the Internet I would select the Network type from my host pc ie to create a Vpn connection or whatever my end is connected via!
