Hello All,

I am wanting to setup a Mac Server to manager my ios and osx device.  Well so far I have been successfull in having it setup internally.  

My current config -

-my domain name abc.com is registered with Godaddy, and I have a website that is currently hosted with a third party.
-I created a HOST DNS entry on my win2k8 R2 server as xxx.abc.com and pointed it to the IP where my Mac Server is running on 192.168.1.25

Currently from my IOS device and OSX device that is connected to the network, I am able to successfully access the Mac Profile Manager website to enroll my devices..

My question is, what must I do in order to have it accessible via the internet.. I want to be able to access my Mac Server Profile Manager when I am at a remote location..

The best (because most secure way) would be to setup a VPN server on your gateway. Please elaborate on your network/firewall setup and your WAN connection; eg. whatever you have a fixed/dynamic public IP.
In case of your iOS devices, IPSec is really well supported. Desktop OS's support a wide range of VPN clients.

Other, by far less secure ways:
Setup a reverse proxy, or
NAT port redirection

Be aware, both options would require you to expose your Windows server to the public internet. Thus you should at least employ a TLS (https) requirement in IIS. I strongly suggest putting your web server in a DMZ in this case.
The NAT port redirect is something any cheap firewall can do and is by far the easiest to set up.
