Replacing UNIX / Clark Connect software with Windows 2003 Server
Posted on 2008-06-10
Hello, I need information about Windows 2003...
I need to replace an unstable UNIX computer which runs Clark Connect software. The purpose of this system is to take our static IP address and forward ports to the server (Exchange Email, (SMTP port 25), Outlook Web Access (port 443), and other port forwardings). This Clark Connect system also handles our VPN and stores FTP files on the UNIX computer.
My question is: Can our Windows 2003 server (which has 2 ethernet ports) do this instead? Does Windows 2003 server have VPN software included? If I plug in the static IP cable will email simply come in direct? Are there any risks?
