Small Business Server 2008 Standard And Co-Location Setup
Posted on 2010-09-13
I have a client who has Small Business Server 2008 Standard currently installed at their premises but would now like to move this offsite to a co-location host in light of the earthquake which struck Christchurch. My question is, how do I configure the server to allow this move? I contacted the co-location host and they have infomrmed me that they will assign 1 external IP Address to the server, which they will completely block all incoming connections excpet for the ports I ask them to open, which will be the usual Small Business Server ports. My question is, how do I configure the IP Address on the server for an external IP before taking it over to the co-location host? What other considerations do I have to take in mind?
