Dynamic IP - SBS2008 DNS entry in WHM

Hi,

I need to add the following entries to a WHM panel for SBS2008 set up.
I am using a dynamic IP manages by no-ip

For the purpose of the question, my no-ip will be named fred-no-ip.org

It states that:

WWW      A      xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx      Static IP address of your web site or Office Live
Remote      A      xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx      IP address of your router that connects to your SBS 2008 system
MX      Alias (CNAME)      Remote.yourdomain.co.uk      Provides email routing so that mail sent to someone@yourdomain.co.uk will arrive on your SBS 2008 system

Shall my DNS in WHM set that way:


WWW      A      xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx      Static IP address of your web site or Office Live
Remote      CNAME      fred-no-ip.org      
MX      Alias (CNAME)      Remote.fred-no-ip.org

Thanks

Regards

Sorry, don't quite understand the question.

Are you asking what DNS entries should be setup for an SBS2008 server to allow it to recieve email and be remote accessable?

If you are then it is in two parts.

1 - a cname for remote.mysbs.biz which has fred.no-ip.org as it's data
2 - mx with remote.mysbs.biz as it's data.

The www record is for the company website which I would recomend is not on your SBS server.


Couple of tips for SBS2008

1 - Get an SSL cert for the system (I use startssl.com as it's free when I can)
2 - Make sure you only open port 25 and 443 on your firewall unless you need other services.

DOn't manage your external DNS on the SBS server.
