NTDS Settings and Transport Type

I have setup a remote DC in a new subnet using Windows 2003 Standard
connecting back to my SBS 2003 Premium server over a VPN link. When
creating the AD connection in AD Sites and Services, what is the best
transport method to use, IP or RCP?

Thanks.

Ken

Well, basically RPC is IP. There are two types of connections, IP and SMTP.
SMTP is for slow links, such as a dialup line. But then again, if you need
to use SMTP, then you must create a separate child domain or tree because
domain based BLOB data cannot replicate over an SMTP transport.

Make sure prior to promoting that the server is only using the SBS as the
DNS address. For specific information and help with SBS, please post to the
SBS newsgroups. This is because SBS has it's own nuances and idiosyncrosies
compared to regular Windows.

Good point. Let's see what he means when he responds.

Thanks for your help, Herb and Ace. I think I understand what I should be
doing now.

Same here. Maybe we can provide some input on your solution?
