SBS Setup Broadband Type? My server uses...
Posted on 2007-03-31
I am setting up SBS 2003 R2. At the beginning of the Configure Email and Internet Connection Wizard it asks what kind of Broadband connection that will be used.
I have a Bellsouth Netopia 3347 DSL Modem/Router. The router is assigned a static IP from Bellsouth. The router uses a PPPOE username and password to authenticate with Bellsouth. I will be using two network adapters so the server will be the gateway and firewall. I expect to access the server remotely via VPN or Remote Desktop. I may host a public webpage. I will be setting up Exchange to send/receive email directly to/from the server.
Do I select...
1. A local router device with an IP address,
2. A connection that requires a username and password (PPPoE),
3. A direct broadband connection?
They all seem very similar and it is not clear which should be used.
Thanks in advance.
