Exchange Server

Posted on 2011-05-06

One of my clients shut down his Business and wants to move it to his Home Office.

System running Windows Server 2008 with Exchange. It's configured to work in the office where they have a dedicated IP etc for the server.

Now when moving the server they will be using SKY Broadband in the UK and a Netgear Router.

So this is what I'm thinking of doing and would appreciate if someone can tell me if this will or will not work and if there is something I'm missing or should think about .

Set the MX Records to point to the new Router External IP
Forward UDP 110 to the Exchange Server IP

Is there anything else we have to change to make this work again ? This is just a temporarily solution and we will move it again to another hosted office in a few weeks.

Is there anything else I have to change in the actual Exchange configuration or the network card configuration ?

Many thanks,

    Forward UDP 110 to the Exchange Server IP what is this for?

    Port 25 TCP needs to go to the Exchange Server IP for smtp email. Then 443 for owa, activesync and so on.

    Yes the mx records would need to point an a record that points at the outside ip of the router.

    A record done and pinging as it should

    So 25 port forwarding for incoming e-mail so the router passes them on, I just assumed it was 110, thanks for the heads up.

    Never used home set-ups, only ever done a Business set-up where we have dedicated IP's for everything

    Thanks again.
