SBS 2008 Installation - No external Domain Name needed for remote administration?
Posted on 2010-11-24
Installing a first server into a peer to peer network, SBS 2008. Before I begin the migraine I have a scenario that I would appreciate some advice on.
1. During Installation is it necessary to register a domain name at all? (other than the internal domain)
2. Can I access the server remotely to do administrative tasks if the server does not have a external domain name? what would I need to do to be able to administer the server from home.?
The site does not need an external domain name. All they want to do is be server based instead of peer to peer, have internal email but still receive their external email as they currently do. Do they need a static IP address in order for me to connect to the server remotely?
Any help would be very much appreciated as this is a first SBS 2008 Install for me
