Exchange 2003 Setup on a Qwest DSL Network
Posted on 2006-05-13
I could not figure out the difficulty level for point sake so I have set it up at an easy level thinking that this information may be very basic information for experts like yourself.
Could somebody please help and let me know what kind of setup I would need to have a Web Server and an exchange server 2003 installed for a small non-profit organization.
They have Qwest Non-Business DSL with not Static IP addresses.
ActionTec DSL Wireless modem supplied by Qwest.
A windows 2003 DHCP Server
A windows 2003 Active Directory with 2 Domain Controllers.
Windows XP clients
They have purchased Exchange 2003 Server
A hosted website with .org domain. They would like to get rid of this hosted site and set it up on their own web server so they dont have to make a monthly payment.
Almost everything comes from charities so they really are not in a position to pay a high recurring monthly charge which is associated with a hosted exchange server or other services.
I have heard about DynDNS and other dynamic DNS websites. Would they have to route all of their DOMAIN.ORG traffic using these kind of services since there External Qwest IP Address may change. It has not changed in the last 2 years.
A few local businesses are willing to give their old switches or routers if needed.
