a question about serving applications through an SBS 2008 domain

Posted on 2011-10-18
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have a domain with SBS 2008 as the controller and a second box with server 2008 r2. The second server has filemaker server installed and is a general business database.
I would like to share an application (arcGIS) and since 2008 r2 has an application server that would seem to be the place for it.
I've never set up a shared application with check-in check-out on a server before and am not quite sure how I would access it through the web. Static IP points to domain controller(SBS 2008) I access File maker through RWW.
Is there a way I can point through the 1st server- to the second sever- over the internet. (It's easy over the Intranet because I can use the IP range 192.168.x.x, but that's not going to work over the big wide web.
This is probably a very simple question- but searches haven't been helping me. So I thought I'd ask here.
Thanks for reading.

    So, you want to use Terminal Services to provided access to the filemaker software?

    No I want to be able to share arcGIS over the internet on a server that is part of a domain- but not the domain controller and that does not have a static Internet IP (static Ip with in the subdomain)

    So, you want to use Terminal Services\Remote Desktop Services which allows you to deploy the application through the RemoteWeb App feature.

    Yes, I think that's what I was looking for- use rdp through "connect to a computer" and run it that way. I was also thinking there might be a way through address that I could access it.
    example: - connect through a port using routing.
    I'm kind of fishing here- the arcGIS instructions are for huge enterprise deployments and I'm trying to feel my way into the quickest and cleanest way in for my mapping folks

    Is the software a web based software?
