SBS 2003 Premium two network cards using Linksys router and Cisco Smart Switch PPPOE ISP Connection

Goal: To run CEICW from the TODO list connect my external nic to my ISP  using a Linksys 1 port router for connection to my ISP (SBS DSL) and use the Cisco smart switch for all my clients to access the internet as part of the domain, receiving IP's from DHCP from the SBS Server and also to allow guest computers to connect to the internet without becoming a member of the domain when plugged in to the switch?

Next: E-mail setup to use exchange for sending and receiving mail allowing connection to my PDA and via browsers. What is the best setup in the CEICW for this purpose?

If you have any suggestions please feel free this is my developement/production server that needs to be in production now, but I've had no luck getting it to conncect to the internet where clients could use it. What would be my network adapter settings for the internal network and the external network?

If you have a Linksys router (which is probably a good idea) then you need to have the ROUTER get connected to the Internet first.  I'll assume that you meant SBC DSL (or actually at&t DSL).  This information needs to be entered in the ROUTER's control panel.  You should also enable UPnP while you are there.

Then, when you run the CEICW you will select "local router with an IP address" as your connection type.  You will need to still put at&t's DNS server IP's in the wizard on the Forwarders Screen.  A visual how-to is here:  http://sbsurl.com/ceicw with broader descriptions of SBS's Internet Connection options here:  http://sbsurl.com/msicw

An example of how to configure everything in this scenario is here:  http://sbsurl.com/twonics

There are no special settings you need to make for email to your PDA or for Outlook Web Access, this is configured automatically as long as your server has a FQDN registered and configured in a publically available DNS Zone file...(usually wherever you register the domain name or at your web hosting provider).  Just enter the domain name in the appropriate box and the CEICW will take care of the rest.

For your PDA, though, it would depend on what operating system it's running to make sure that you can connect properly.  Please see http://sbsurl.com/mobile for additional assistance.
