Hi Sandy,

Unfortunately RPC over HTTP does not work on Windows 2000.  I know because I
have some users on Windows 2000 and I called Microsoft tech support to
confirm it. Your options are to use VPN (activate and configure RAS on the
server, and connect using MS VPN from workstation, non-trivial) or use IMAP
or POP3, or to upgrade the workstation to Windows XP SP2.
