How to setup a domain network with remote access, web and email servers
Posted on 2005-04-27
Hi, I am new to networking and need to setup a domain network for a small company with 20 PCs.
The comapny has four departments: Finance, administartion, production and designs. Each department require access to their own servers. However, they are not allowed to see each others resources and internal servers. I have to fulfill the following requirements:
Every department must have access to the email servers and database servers.
Finance should be able to see all resources
Admin shoud only see their own resources, email, database and web servers.
NB. Finance and admin share the same resources but admin must have restricted access.
Production and designs are only allowed to access the email and databse servers.
NB Production and designs share the same resources but each have restircted rights. These are different from that of the Finance and Admin reources.
I need to allow remote or vpn access so that senior management can access all the resources in the office from home.
I have an ADSL connection, a router, two DELL servers, a few hubs and layer 2 switches to work with. How do i design the the network?
I am considering in using two subnets, one for the admin and finance, and the second one for the other two departments. Would this work for restricting PCs in different departments from seeing each other or do i just need GPOs?
I am using microsoft windows server 2000, exchange server 2000 and SQL server 2000. On which servers do I make DNS, DHCP, DC email and web servers on? I only have two and I am not sure which one should be connected to the router to allow internet access.
This may seem like a big requirement, but I really need help!!
