We are a small firm based in the UK and have been let down by two British IT consultants that used to take care of small IT problems remotely on our server and work stations. My company is not large enough to warrant entering into a contract for IT support as I am capable of dealing with most minor issues as they arise, but lately I have become too busy to get involved with our systems.
Having had a brief look through Freelancer it would appear you possibly have the skills required and I wondered if you would be interested in remotely administering our IT requirements, which are as follows:
Dell Poweredge 2650 server acting as a files server running win 2003 r2
A few work stations, mainly Dell laptops running windows 7 pro.
I have two immediate requirements;
1. To configure and install two new Draytek Vigor 2850Vn fibre routers/modems in two different locations and create a secure link enabling remote back up of the server off site.
2. Configure the Server for direct remote access, so that applications / software may be run as if sat infront of the server! I am aware that this is not the best practice, but given my immediate time constraints feel this will provide a temporary solution for access whilst I'm out of the country.
Longer term, I am looking to have an addition work station setup allowing remote access through it rather than as 2 above.
Generally, I will then require one off support for reconfiguration of the server and other minor occasions. I don't believe anything in future will generally require an immediate response, but I am looking to have support provided within 8 hours of reporting any issue. I can't see any details regarding your English skills and regret I am only able to communicate in English, either by email or voice over skype!
Having read some of your feedback, they are very positive and encouraging, accordingly I would be most pleased if you would consider this opportunity if it fits within your skill set. I haven't set any initial budget and I'm willing to place a small milestone in freelancer if you could give some indication of your costs for tasks 1 and 2, to prove I am willing and able to make payments. Before engaging on any project I would welcome the chance to talk with you over skpe to discuss various issues.
