Program on server for computers in network

August 4, 2012 at 04:47:03
Specs: Windows 2000, P 4/1GB
How can I install a program on my server so that every computer in the network can use the program?
And I have another little question: is it possible to access the servers disk without being connected to the server. For example when I'm at work.

Depends upon the program. Some can be installed on a server, some can't. You don't give enough details for a sensible answer.

Bear in mind that if this is commercial software then you will need to buy licences for each user. You can't use a server install to save money - in fact there are few good reasons to install programs centrally.

Ok, thanks for the info.
Is it possible to access a network map with a computer that isn't a member of the AD?

The program I want to install is Kerkythea

I think your best bet is to email the developers, or post on the site forums, and ask whether a server install is possible. The problem, in general, is that many Windows programs rely on registry settings so need some install process on the local machine.

Research remote desktop or terminal server. This is probably what you're looking for. When set up properly, it allows people to access a program installed on a server from any computer as long as they have the correct user name and password.
