Hi, I have searched the internet up and down and I cannot get a straight clearcut answer to the following points regarding sbs 2008 installation.
Consider the following scenario;
An SBS 2008 installation with internal domain name jdoe.local
A website hosted with an ISP, www.jdoe.net
The SBS setup wizard asks for the external domain name so I tell it jdoe.net
I now want to get some remote services running off of the SBS server.
I have a sonicwall firewall installed and have been assigned a static IP, so in theory all the elements are in place. I realize I will have to open some ports on the sonicwall which is fine I will do this in due course.
My question is, , how is this supposed to work.
Do I need to get the DNS records modified at my ISP to point to my static IP ?
OR does the SBS 2008 try to do the DNS stuff by itself ? if it does then what happens the website hosted at the ISP ?
Need an overview on this please asap
