SBS 2003 - Remote Access
Posted on 2005-05-11
Hi, I have a simple question that may turn into a more complicated one...our setup is this: We have recently setup SBS2003 on a network that was previously peer-to-peer. However we are still running a router (SonicWall with VPN) between the server and a cable modem. We are also still leaving our webhosting and email to an ISP, and using PopConnectors in the SBS to grab the email (and really have no intention of changing this seeing as they do a great job with spam etc...). We are running a dynamic IP address which we could switch to static if need be (although the IP hasn't changed in years).
So the question is: Do we need a FQDN (Fully qualified domain name) in order to turn on features such as Outlook web access or Remot Web Workplace? Right now our SonicWall just has an IP, it isn't linked to our web domain name.
Thanks in advance! This may be an easy one for someone in the know, but for us non-IT professionals it is hard to find out seemingly simple things such as this!
