Epic Server stuff

Do we want to stick with Server 2003 like we have? This allows us to use Routing/Remote access to share the internet on the 1 Nic and then other Nic is connected to the Lan. This way we guarantee that all gaming traffic stays internal while in tournaments, etc.

I only have a copy of Home premium to install for Windows 7 which will not have this functionality.

Not sure if anyone has a copy of 2008 (legal of course) that would work?

8 hyperthreaded cores and 16GB of gaming goodness. Only issue is I want to put it on an SSD.. Server 2003 makes that hard with AHCI, etc. I was going to install a brand new copy, but OMG getting RAID drivers is nuts... it will only look at a floppy, how did we ever deal with those? LOL

  • I do actually have a license of server 08 that is not currently in use. If you would like to use it (and then delete the install afterwards, of course) that would be fine.

    Maybe use preview version of 2008 or 2012? you get 60 days free for evaluation. I haven't played with 2012 yet, though it did just come out yesterday. I also have a valid and legal enterprise MSDN key we could use for this purpose if Win7 enterprise would work.

    Ryder, I've also got a full legal license of server 08 that belongs to Icrontic and is currently unused. All good :)

    Depending on the version:
    2008 Standard
    2008R2 Standard requires microsoft login like Hotmail
