This is a test network.
Desired end state: Administer a 2008 server in a DMZ that is not part of the AD domain.
I am building a Microsoft Exchange 2007 Edge Transport server that is being place in a DMZ (DMZ is in a Smoothwall 2.0 orange zone) on a separate subnet 192.168.200.x. The domain is in 192.168.100.x. This server is being installed prior to the Exchange 2007 mailbox/public folder server.
Using remote desktop connection only seems to work if the server is in the same domain.
I feel this is a two part problem 1. Being able to administer the Edge server without being part of the domain. 2. Being able to get to the server and administer it through the firewall on a separate subnet (a firewall problem).
Currently the Edge server is on the same subnet in the LAN (not DMZ).
