  1. I need to stop and start services remotely from one server to another. I can not find out how to do it. Can someone help me? I would prefer not having to buy any software.

    Welcome to TechSpot

    You can use the standard Computer Management which is included in W2K-Pro and W2K-Server.
    Right-click My Computer on the Desktop, choose Manage
    Start/Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Computer Management
    type compmgmt.msc at a command prompt.

    In the console Tree, right-click Computer Management (Local) and choose "Connect to Another Computer"

    Provided you have Admin-rights on that computer, you can start messing around on the other PC

    I have to admit that I have this knowledge from an excellent book:
    Microsoft Windows 2000: Professional Expert Companion,
    written by Craig Stinson and Carl Siechert
    Published by Microsoft Press $39.99
    ISBN 0-7356-0855-5

    You can also look up the net start and net stop commands. Some services are not permitted to be controlled by this remotely, fyi..
