  • Action Pack Project

    Just becaome an MCP and would like to further my skills. I have the Microsoft Action Pack and would like to install all of it on a separate 500GB drive on an XP desktop. My questions are as follows:

    - How can I install Server 2003 so that it runs simultaneously with XP?
    - How can I configure so that outsiders can connect to only one portion of the drive that contains software such as SharePoint, Communications Server, etc. I want to run a secure webserver as well. Not the world... just those with accounts

    - How can I obtain maximum security since I am connected to the internet through a DSL connection. I have a small business firewall by Symantec but want to know if good security can be established through software. VPN should be a good option but I seek the advice of those more experienced.

    Much thanks for guidance from informed parties.

    Use Virtual PC to run multiple guest OSes on one Host OS. You will need a fair amount of RAM

      Perhaps you would like to refine what you want to install from the Action Pack. There is a LOT of software in it. Plan what you want to learn and not try it all at once.
      1 1 was a racehorse.
      2 2 was 1 2.
      1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
      2 2 1 1 2
