Small Business Server (SBS) 2003 behind a Netgear FVS318 Firewall
Posted on 2006-11-23
I run a small business helping small SMEs improve their business efficency, largely through relatively simple I.T. measures (line-of-business databases, basic networking etc). As such, although 'I.T. savvy', we are jack-of-all-trades rather than specialists in any particular area.
We run SBS 2003 internally and when I set it up a couple of years ago, I sat the server behind a Netgear FVS318 that we happened to have lying around (itself behind a Draytek 2600VG ADSL router).
This arrangement has worked fine for the last couple of years and I use the Netgear VPN client software to access network facilities when out-and-about, with VPN pass-through enabled on the Draytek to the Netgear.
However, over the last couple of years, we have become increasingly familiar with SBS, both on our own server and on our clients', and really like the possibilities that Remote Web Workplace gives - particularly, the capacity to 'dial in', anywhere, straight from a browser.
The question is quite simple, can SBS Remote Web Workplace co-exist with the existing Netgear VPN ?
We do not currently use ISA and our server only has a single network card. Internally, we use 192.168.0.x addresses.
Before I go off on a long exercise to try and get it working (only to screw up the exist Netgear VPN in the process ?!?), if somebody can advise whether what I want to do is possible - and if so, HOW - then that would be really helpful.
Many thanks in advance,
