    I forgot something.

    I have a switch after the second nic "out" to the switch and then to the XP
    machines. So I have great speeds this server is very strong.

    So my config is this:
    ISP off the wall to Modem to main nic.(ICF)
    Second nic inside server out to 8 port Belkin switch.
    Belkin switch to XP machines.

    If you must ditch the router (not advisable, but anyway...) then configure
    RRAS to perform the NAT role. You do not need DHCP on this small network.
    Let's keep things static for right now.

    "I added a forward lookkup zone under my Timemachine.local for my XP
    machines is this what I shoulkd have done or should I delete this record?"

    So you've configured a Standard Primary zone for your AD domain. That's OK
    that works. It could be AD_integrated but Standard Primary is fine.

    Hello Todd,

    Sorry for the delay. THe website has been down mosr of the day and I
    couldn't reply.

    Ok so now we have:

    DNS and AD installed and configured.(well...almost)

    When I install RRAS it will ask me a few types of installs I remember from
    my last "go round' " with it. WHat would my selections be during install
    according to my tiny network?

    About the Hardrives that never seem to stop do you think this was my drives
    Syncronizing the same hardrive for the first time? I have to stop this data
    flow it i killing my resources.
    That is it for now
    Thanks
    Joe

    You want to choose the NAT option. Radio button near the middle I believe.

    "About the Hardrives that never seem to stop do you think this was my drives
    Synchronizing the same hardrive for the first time?"

    Not sure, but from your description I'd say that was a good bet.

    Also, make sure you enable the "basic firewall" option on the external
    interface. You may need to remove Internet Connection Sharing from the
    internal interface beforehand.

    Hello Todd,

    I am sorry I cannot go any further yet My files are filling up my hardrives
    with the synchronization crap I don't know why this is happening.

    If I change the target in My Docs on one of the XP machines it will stop but
    I I set the target to say \\Timemachine\D$ this thing never stops
    synchronizing the files.

    Both machines So how do I place the target of My Documents on the server as
    I originally had in the workgroup? Why they replicating now with a domain
    controller
    same target as before just now A DC with AD. My XP machines have no disc
    space left!

    Stop and disable synchronization completely. Start off from scratch with a
    new synchronization policy altogether for these machines.

    "I also added the VPN along wiht RRAS what ports do I open to allow
    Great to hear! To get you started just enable a PPTP-style VPN right now.
    L2TP requires the use of certificates and is a bit harder to implement. For
    PPTP, you need to allow tcp port 1723 and protocol ID 47 (protocol ID 47 is
    known as GRE - and may be documented as PPTP pass-through) .

    Hello Todd,

    I am sorry for the delay in replying but I never got an email that you
    posted back so I thought yopu have left me here = )

    I just now saw the post about VPN and I am able to connect but I have not
    been able to browse beyond my server shares. However I have not read the KB
    articles yet either I will give that a try very shortly.

    Thanks very much I get back soon

    Ok all looks good after readinf this great info.

    I am having only one small problem here.

    when I go to browse for the desktop XP machine I get the error the
    "workstation is not trusted by the domain" something to that effect. I
    cannot get to this machine but I can the other. I think that is it = )

    This is a much better config than before

    Thanks Todd,
    Joe
