Hope someone can answer this one. I have my ISP setup to point to my ip address. The record are as follows and all point to my external static IP address.
mail.mce.bz
remote.mce.bz
www.mce.bz
pop.mce.bz
smtp.mce.bz
ftp.mce.bz
also an mail exchange record mce.bz going to my static ip.

I wanted my ISP to point to myipaddress/exchange for mail.mce.bz to go to outlook web access. But they said they do not do this and only configure a host and pointer record. I need to know how I configure this internally. I need my mail.mce.bz to go to myipaddress/exchange and remote.mce.bz to fo to myipaddress/remote. Now since this will resolve internal I assume that myipaddress can be replaced with my server name. Just need to know how to set this up. As for the others correct me if I am wrong but my exchange mail record will work going to my external IP because it is using the SMTP protocol. This is the same as with my pop.mce.bz and smtp.mce.bz respectibly. Now what I am not sure of is the ftp.mce.bz. I want to be able to ftp with this subdomain through my web browser. What do I have to setup internally for it to point to ftp://ftp.mce.bz or ftp://myipaddress? Looking it up I see that microsoft recomends the following setup for small business. Now my records on the ISP are all pointing to the ip address. I am assuming this way is good as well or no? Because my problem would be that my ISP will said that they can only enter pointer and host records.

portal.businessname.com

Thank You

if you have a webserver running and outlook web access is installed and you have your domain name pointing at the ip address of your webserver, you should just have to put www.mydomain.com/exchange

Yes I realize that but I wanted to set this up with the sub domain mail.mce.bz. It is easier for my users who are used to typing it in this way. I am trying to keep the consistence of the network.

Think I just found my answer. I was over complicating things in my head. All I have to do is setup the subdomain internally and have it listen on the external IP.  Found this at http://content.websitegear.com/article/subdomain_setup.htm
