SBS 2011 Outlook and VPN help
Posted on 2011-03-02
Hello Fellow Experts,
I want to propose to my job to upgrade from SBS 2003 to SBS 2011 Standard but I have a couple important questions before I send up the proposal. I understand that SBS 2011 has gotton rid of Remote Web Workplace and Small Business Connector and changed it to Remote Web Access but I have a few people that have a laptop that they use at work and at home so they dont have a desktop computer to connect to at work. I am wondering is it possible to set up Outlook to work locally on the laptop without using Remote Web Access and in order for this to work I believe I have to setup VPN Access.
Has anybody setup VPN access and Local Outlook access to avoid using RWA totally so that they can map to the share drive locally on the laptop? Is it even possible to work remotely without using RWA?
