remote desktop web connections

Hello I currently have a win2003 server, used mainly for remote desktop connections with terminal services. I would like to set up for remote web connections. Can this be done at the same time as regular remote connections are still coming in? I ask because I set up DNS on the server and was in the final stages when I realized I could no longer locate my list of users and groups in computer management (other options were there instead). Does it move the lists to a different location when DNS is installed? Are there any special procedures I must follow to have both set up at the same time? I am 'new' with remote connections and even newer with DNS, any info will be helpful. thank you!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Let me get this straight:
You installed DNS Server and now you are not able to see the Users and Groups section under Computer management?
Did you change the servers network configuration to point to itself versus some other DNS server?

Try managing the computer and type in the IP versus the NetBIOS/fqdn. If that works, you didn’t set your IP in the DNS, your network connection is not pointing to the right server, or something is wrong with your DNS setup.

There should not be any problems running the two services on the same machine, though I wouldn’t recommend it. A DNS server, or any Internet facing computer, shouldn’t run extraneous services, especially one that can give you direct control of the computer, like Terminal Services can. You’re also running IIS and a Web server on the same computer, so you’re just adding on a lot of vulnerability potential. If this is serving out DNS entries for a single corporation to the Internet, you shouldn’t have to change the DNS often enough to warrant the risk involved. For a situation like that, you’re better going to the console to change your entries.
