Setting up a new network with a seperate company
Posted on 2014-01-03
My company has purchased a new company. We currently have our main location where I have my own network, several MS 2003 & 2008 servers, Exchange 2010, etc. We have MAS500 ERP system which we use to handle all of our Sales orders, Inventory, Shipments, etc.
We purchased a small company that MAY have the potential to provide profit for us. For now, I want to make the investment minimal. I need to create a network for about 5 computers to be able to communicate with each other a share files, printers, etc. They need to connect to the internet and be able to connect to our ERP system at the main office to be able to create Sales Orders,, shipments, track inventory, etc.
I do not want to invest in a T1 line or make a long term commitment to a provider at this point for anything expensive.
I also want to provide them email from my Exchange server but I would like to give them a different domain name on their email. Is this possible? My domain is ABC.com but I would prefer their email address to be xyz.com. If I own that domain name can I do that without actually making it a subdomain?
Any advice or suggestions is appreciated. Thanks!
