  • Support for IP Security (IPSec) to protect data being transmitted across VPNs

  • Kerberos v5 support for authentication

  • Group Policy settings for administering networks and users

  • Offline viewing of network data when not connected to the network

  • Synchronization of local and network files

  • Remote access configuration wizard

  • Microsoft and Novell NetWare network clients

  • Support for Active Directory (Microsoft's directory service feature which helps to manage users and resources on large networks)

  • Disk quotas to prevent a few storage-hog users from running the server out of space

  • Internet Information Services, including FTP, FrontPage 2000 Server Extensions, SMTP (Simple Mail Transport Protocol) service, World Wide Web service, the management snap-in for the Microsoft Management Console, remote deployment support, and documentation

  • Fax services for sending and receiving faxes

  • Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) support
