i started thinking about my lan after readig "ffisher"'s question regarding internet-over-lan....

in my office, my personal workstation has internet dial-up access...

i would like to make internet available to all my employees (either thru dial-up or dsl)...

to start with, i would like to just set up a "internet" box in the computer room, which i connect to thru the lan, and dial out...

question - should this internet-box be a W2K-professional or a W2K-Advanced-Server box?...

the reason i ask this is that if i end up getting dsl, i woudl like to use this high speed connection from my house as well... i would dial into work, connect to the office lan, and go out to the internet via the dsl, hence eliminating the need for an additional dial-up service account for my house...

what do y'all say?.... thx

how many computers are we talking here? you dont really even need to run a server version of windows, not if its a few computers. if your talking about 50 or so, you will need a fairly beefy computer.

i went to the tomshardware forums and all i got was this lousy signature.
