Lesson Outline:

Lesson 1: Windows Component Installation and Remote Desktop 

  • How to install Windows components and use "Remote Desktop" access.  

Lesson 2: Remote Assistance

  • How to use "Remote Assistance." Remote Assistace allows you to request assistance for a local Windows XP machine from a remote  XP machine.  

Lesson 3: DHCP Server

  • How to configure DHCP Server. DHCP stands for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol.  Windows Server uses TCP/IP protocol by default. In small home networks, it’s easy to assign the IP addresses manually, but if you have dozens of  workstations or more, you don’t want to have to set up each computer by hand. In these cases, DHCP simplifies the work for you, so you save valuable time and effort.  

Lesson 4: Setting up Active Directory and DNS

  • How to set up and configure the Active Directory.  The  Active Directory is a domain controller on your server. It allows users to logon to your domain with specific "roles," predefined by you.  

Lesson 5: Active Directory User Management

  • How to manage Active Directory users and to create a group of users.

Lesson 6: Event Viewer

  • How to use the "Event Viewer." Windows XP and .NET Server keep an event log which can be used to identify problems with installed components.

Lesson 7: Distributed File System

  • How to set up and configure Distributed File System. Distributed File System - or DFS - allows system administrators to  easily manage shared files over a network. Instead of having physical location, DFS setups link you even though the physical location of the files might change.

Lesson 8: Terminal Server

  • How to set up and configure Terminal Server. Terminal Server provides an effective and reliable way to distribute Windows-based programs with a network server. With Terminal Server, a single point of installation allows multiple users access to the Windows server operating system desktop. There they can run programs, save files, and use network resources as if they were sitting at that computer.

Lesson 9: WINS Server

  • How to set up and configure a WINS server. WINS servers provide a dynamic replicated database service that can configure and resolve NetBios names to IP addresses used on your network. If your machine still runs a pre-Windows 2000 operating system, chances are you need a WINS server in your network.  

Lesson 10: DNS Server Configuration

  • How to configure DNS server, to add Forward lookup zone and Reverse lookup zone and to add host, alias, and mail server to your DNS server.  DNS (Domain Name System) is the software that lets you have name-to-number mappings on your computers.

Lesson 11: Windows Media Service

  • How to configure On Demand Service and Broadcasting Service, use Windows Media Service and attach Banners to Media files and advertisements to your media service.

Lesson 12: Component Services

  • How to configure Component Services

Lesson 13: Computer Management Console

  •  How to manage your local computer.

Lesson 14: File Server

  • How to set up and configure your server as a File Server, in which all workstations in your network can sue the File Server to save and share files.  

Lesson 15: IIS – HTTP Web Server

  • How to use Internet Information Services (IIS) to create and host Web Sites on your computer. In Microsoft Server 2003, you can use IIS’s web service to host a Web site for your own domain or multiple domains, an intranet, and the Internet. You can even allow users to pass through your IIS Web server to access HTML documents on machines within your organization.

Lesson 16: IIS – FTP Server

  • How to set up your computer as a File Transfer Protocol (FTP) Server. FTP was one of the original means of copying files from one location to another on the Internet.  

Lesson 17: IIS – NNTP Server

  • How to set up a Network News Transfer Protocol (NNTP) Server.  The NNTP server can be used as a means of maintaining a threaded conversation database on an IIS server, just like in Internet Usenet groups. Users with properly-configured newsreader programs can navigate through and participate in these conversation databases.

Lesson 18: IIS – SMTP Server

  • How to set up a Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) server. SMTP service is a trimmed-down program provided by Microsoft to handle email service. SMTP is simply a transfer protocol; there is no real structure given to the storage of messages once they have been received by your system.
