Hi there, I'm sure I'm being thick, but getting frustrated.  My inet host for all my public domains is 1and1 (and although I know there not brilliant imo, I don't want a discussion to break out about it, because at this point in time I cannot change this)

Anyway, Ive just installed a new SBS 2011 Server with] exchange 2010 installed.

I need to know what settings/subdomains dns records etc etc to create the right links for remote.soandso.net to goto my private server.

Many thanks

do you have any 1and1 webhosting plans? or just use it for a domain registry? if just the domain, then set your own name servers. Since you need 2 name servers  I use Cloudfare as my name servers with an A record set to my public ip address

Hello,

When you login to 1and1 you should have separate packages for your VPS and domains.

To create the remote. A-Record you can just add a sub domain for 'remote' and point it to your external IP.

Unfortunately though 1&1 doens't support SRV records for autodiscover so if you want to implement this you will have no choice but to host your name servers elsewhere.  (Cloudflare as suggested is a good name server host)

Ok I have this working now, however I cannot figure out how to add an iPhone through activesync, is there more to setup, this is what I have done that works :

in 1and 1 I have

mydomain.com
- DNS Settings:
IP Address (A Record):  1&1 IP Address
Mail server 1: ns2.mydomain.com, 9
Mail server 2: ns1.mydomain.com, 10

Domain name: remote.mydomain.com
IP Address (A Record): 123.123.123.123 <-- my private ip (obviously changed for here)
Mail server 1: ns2.mydomain.com, 9
Mail server 2: ns1.mydomain.com, 10

Domain name: ns1.mydomain.com
IP Address (A Record): 123.123.123.123

Domain name: ns2.mydomain.com
IP Address (A Record): 123.123.123.123

Do I need more records? or do I need more setup on my server for phone access? I've tried on both an IPhone and a galaxy, by putting in remote.mydomain.com as well as direct ip addresses for the server, but still refuses to setup.  

Thanks in advance.
