Hi,
What is the role of Users security group in SBS 2000? We have every user in the domain belong to Domain Users group but not Users group.

Recently, I tried to test remote access shared server folders from outside.

I had no problem (using user account with administrator right):
1. VPN connection to server;
2. ping server and workstations in the office using their name and ip address;
3. VNC to server and any workstation in the network;
4. Remote Desktop connection to server

But have problem:
1. seeing server and computers in the company network through Network Neighborhood
2. mapping shared server folders
3. use \\servername\sharename to connect to shared server folders under DOS prompt

Please help to fix those problems. At the end, I want to be able to map shared folders from outside and work on the files under shared folders.

The "Users" security group is local as opposed to the "Domain Users"
group which, as its name says, is domain based.

It is difficult to provide any advice about your problem unless you state
exactly what you mean with "remote access". It would also help if
you stated your clients' OS. Even though you mention DOS I doubt
that they run DOS - perhaps you were referring to the "Command
Prompt" under Windows 2000.

I used dial-up at home to connect to my ISP and then I VPNed to the server of my working company. My home computer is a laptop with MS W2k SP4. Zone Alarm is also installed in this laptop. I used the "Command Prompt" under W2k to ping to the computers in the company network, eg. ping computer01 or ping 192.168.16.110.

What other information I need to provide?

Thanks.

Further to my questions. I found out the "File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks" was disabled for the NIC connected to the Internet in the company server. Should I enable it? If I enable it, could everyone from outside can see the files in the company network?

Here are a few hints:
- Set your firewall to the lowest security level during testing.
- Check your firewall's log files to see if it's blocking your connection attempts.
- Enable File Sharing for the connections you use.
- Make sure that your home IP subnet address is different from the one at work.
- If pinging is successful, try making a connection by IP address rather than by name.
