Can someone tell me...... does a user actually have to be logged into a server for it to work correctly? OR is it correct to say that as long as the server is ON everything will work.

That's true, but once you've configured the server and configured all required settings, you could log off the account, leave the server at the login screen and it will continue 'serving'

Let's take an example of IIS running on a Win 2003 machine. Once you've configured the IIS settings, specified your root directory and placed your web content there, it would continue serving web pages to anyone who connects to it, even if there's no local user logged in.

I guess what I should've added to my last post was

I suppose it's how you interpret the OP. Yours is probably what the OP meant.
