im interested in trying to learn about IT. at work they use server 2003 and a vpn. i want to be able to install a similiar getup on my system at home. they run xp pro at work 32 bit. i run win 7 64 bit at home with a wireless router connecting 2 more desktops and 1 laptop. can anyone give me advice on how to make this work if possible? where to start and in which order. also, my isp says that im not allowed to have a server, so does this mean its going to be a problem?

Hello watcher6342, Could you be a bit clearer about what you want the outcome to be? As far as I can gather, you're trying to remotely control a computer over LAN. If that's the case, then you won't need to run a Windows 2003 Server, nor will it break any terms and conditions with your ISP. When they say you can't run a server, they tend to mean you can't run a server which accesses the internet. Anyway, there may be a quicker and easier way to achieve what you want. Cheers, Nahumi

I don't think he's looking for another way. He wants to emulate what is being done at work. I have no experience with Windows 2003 or VPN so can't be of help though. Hopefully one of the other folks can.
