The question is simple how do i assign an external IP address to sbs server 2003, and ensure the router routers everything correctly.
 
I have the server set-up with 2 nic one lan and one wan, the wan is connected to a netgear dg834g router, and currently has an IP address of 10.0.0.2, the routers lan ip is 10.0.0.1.
 
I have been assigned 5 no-nat ip addresses 87.***,***.***, the routers WAN has one assigned to it and i would like to assign another to my sbs 2003's WAN nic.
 
What is the correct way of doing it and keeping it secure, allowing access to all the sbs features, i.e RWW, Remote Desktop, Remote assistants, VPN webserver and ftp site.
 
Your help would be much appreciated
 
Thanks Diviesh

The SBS Server will do most of the work automatically if you run the wizards.  The Internet Coinnection Wizard specifically will setup all of this for you.  You will be asked a number of questions as you go through it so that it can set this up properly for you.  You will need to turn off NAT on the netgear, and/or do whatever else it will require to use the public IP Addresses inside the network.  

If you have the premium edition use the ISA server, that will give you more protection.

On your router you need to do port forwarding of the ports for the services in question to the 10.0.0.2 nic.
