I am attempting to create an environment at home to test/learn software.
At the moment I want to create a network that uses a web domain and exchange 2010 on windows server 2008 r2 to manage mail eg. email@example.com.
As shown in the diagram. I have a cable internet connection (dynamic IP). Linksys router. Two PCs connected via Ethernet and wireless. The computer with the wireless connection will host VMware workstation with Win2k8 and exchange.
The router is configured with dynDNS.org.
The VMware PC has Win Server 2008 R2 (with AD DS installeD) with an internet connection setup correctly.
Is this setup feasible even with a dynamic IP, VMware to host the server software, wireless access point?
With the dynamic IP and VMware would it make it too complex for a newbie?
