Hi all, Trust you are well.

Not 100% sure about this - but hopefully someone can give me an answer.

We are running Microsoft Small Business Server 2003. Currently on offer is a Wireless BroadBand device, which gives us 1mg capability. From a networking perspective, is it possible to be able to "get into" my network via this device. The ISP are offering a Fixed IP option on the device for an additional charge.

By "get into" - i'm refering to the ability of say using the OWA component or other facilities that having a server on a fixed connection might provide.

    Probably, but can't be certain without referencing exactly what kind of device and service.  All the routers I've seen allow for port forwarding, so with a static (or even dynamic) IP address, you could forward web and/or SSL ports to your server handling OWA.
