I just installed Windows 2000 Professional today. I am trying to figure out
how to set it up for my situation:
1) At work, I connect using a computer name called NAME1, and it belongs to
2) At home, I use a cable modem, and I have a different computer name,
NAME2 -- this is used for DHCP, and serves as the hostname. In this case it
is standalone. However, I may use the system at home with VPN access.
I have separate network settings in each case, ie: WINS configuration, etc.
However, it seems I can only bind one set of settings to the whole system.
Is this true?
I tried creating multiple hardware profiles, but in fact the hardware hasn't
really changed, only the network settings have.
What is my best method of getting things to run smoothly?
