Hi,

I installed winroute on windows xp. but the program didn't work. Now I'm using winroute on windows server 2003. But my computer has very slow memory, so it is almost impossible to work with windows server 2003.


I want to install winroute (the latest version) as router on windows 2000 workstation sp4. Can you tell me, will it work out?

Many thanks,

I understand just fine. There's no difference. If it doesn't work on your XP, there's something wrong with your XP installation. KWF works the same on all platforms.

ok. just tell me the difference between win xp and win 2oo3 server.
in network config point of view. why do we use 2003 but not xp, or why we sometimes use xp but not 2003.

if u know this, u can understand me then.

The Windows Server editions are developed to be a server operating system, where some services are disabled that are in XP like, sound, Theming (blue stuff) etc, but these can be enabled with just a mouse click.

Next to that Windows server has some specific server features like Active Directory, DNS Server, DHCP server etc which can be used.

For running Winroute on these systems, I don't know what the real difference is, many company's run it on a server edition, as the router is after all a server.

For my self, i also think windows server 2003, uses less memory then XP, mostly due to the fact that some features are disabled which you don't need on a server.

Hope this helps

ok. i agree with u.

but the real difference among them is, the win 2003 gives unlimited connection for clients at once. but xp gives only 10 connexion at once.

that is the real difference. that is why winroute dint work correctly on xp.

what about windows 200, it is, windows 2000 has no limit for connection. (remote connection) just because Microsoft didn't supply it with this service.

that is the main reason.

but as a system, all above are acceptable for winroute, but as a router it will wrk better only win 2000 and 2003.

That's a common misunderstanding. XP allows only 10 concurrent File and Printer Sharing connections. Indeed, for that Microsoft wants you to buy their server OS's, as well as expensive Client Access Licenses per user/device. (So I don't know where you get the 'unlimited connection' from, you'd have to pay for each and every one).

Anyway, this has nothing to do with other 3rd party services on XP boxes. They can open up as many connections as the service can handle.
