Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

To be honest, your question is a bit broad.  You need to know quite a few different technologies in order to configure all that up.

Also we know nothing about network connectivity (are you using pass thru modules or a switch, for example).  There are plenty more unknowns too.

Craig is right -- we can try to help you with this, but it's like using a waldo on a waldo to get something done, since you are not familiar enough with the underlying HW to be able to know what you have, or even what you want.

This is a case where paying someone who knows what they are doing to come on site, work with you to determine the HW you have, the optimal configuration, and then configure it for you... just might be worthwhile.  In addition, that person will then know your kit and environment, and a month or nine down the road when something goes wrong, or you need to change things, he or she will be able to fix it quickly.

This sounds like a time when you need onsite, professional help.
