    OK I admit it I like it.

    I have to admit I first Cringed when The Server install failed. (Error on
    Intranet and SharePoint Install.)
    But after Finding out that was Supposed to happen! (I tried Three Installs
    before I found out it was supposed to do this.)
    (Another Undocumented Feature.)

    The Only thing I didn't like is that MS assumes you are going to run your
    Machine as the Primary DNS.
    So since I had Smoothwall firewall
    http://server/connectcomputer/ instals and http://mycompany website didnt'
    work.
    (Unless I manually Pointed people PC to the Server as it's Primary DNS
    server.)

    After Telling Smoothwall that the MS Server is it's DNS and Pointing the MS
    server outside
    (and of course Putting Correct Foward Lookups )

    Everything seems to look like it's working. (Knock on wood.)
    I've even got the Shared Fax to work Today (Without even trying. LOL)
    This will save them Tons of Money alone since they get tons of SPAM FAXs
    (Which I thought was illegal?)
    (We already got one and I't s only been installed for 2hrs Laugh!)

    Other than A couple of problems with PC's Hanging durning
    http://server/connectcomputer And messing things up.
    Things are going well.
    All and All B+
    They could have better documention if you run your own firewall. (Or at
    least a wizard for it.)

    So If you are up to the challenge and have configured a MS server before go
    for it.
    (If you've NEVER configured a Server before I recomend hiring someone like
    me who can get the headaches for you.)

    Well they didn't feel like spending That much on a UPnP firewall.
    Unless you know a cheap one?
