I am looking for clarification to the same question in the link above

I could not post in the link above because it is an old thread.

I have got win2003 server with a private ip address (behind router) for small office (10 employees) , I would like to access a server

If I want to use the link above as reference (I know there are more secure ways like IPsec,,,,but I want to use the link above for the configuration) how should I configure the server to allow remote client (XP) to access to the server to manage it remotely ?

Do I need to configure port forwarding on a router ?

On the client side in the link above says

6. Select "Do not dial the initial..." and hit next.
7. Enter the static IP address of the SBS or whatever login server they use and click next.

I could not find the option "Do not dial the initial..."

Which static ip address should I enter ? Is private ip address for the server or public ip address for a router ?

I could not find the option "Do not dial the initial..."

I did find that , if we have dial connection then this option would be available , but if a connection is not dialup (means LAN) then we wouldn't be able to see the option "Do not dial the initial..."
