Looking for help to Setting up Windows server

Asked By 190 points N/A Posted on -

Hi Guys,

Can you direct me to some useful information or provide step by step instructions with a problem I am experiencing? I was able to set up a WAMP on my desktop through the help I received in the past from this forum but I have forgotten a most of the information.

I have a large server with 1.3terabytes, which is fast and 4 dual core hard drives which I have installed Windows Server 2008. This is the trial version for me to test it out. I want to host 3 or 4 sites and I already have the domain names. I bought a static IP, a business internet connection and a new D-Link router.

This means I have all the things I need or so I hope. I need to know what steps to take. I would like to know where and how I find the IP address to enter in the D-Link router and also how to forward the port. I need help with what DNS information to put in the router and how to set up FTP.

How do I access my server remotely as the server will be at home but I will need access when I am at work? Need your help.

Thanks in advance.
