Configuration Help RRS feed

  • Question

  • I got the trail version of WHS in the mail and installed it and now I am quickly discovering that I'm at a loss as to how to configure everything I would like to do.

    First, my environment:

    3 desktops and 2 laptops
    mixed XP-pro / Vista OS
    1 linux email/web server for pop/smtp mail services
    100mps infrastructure running off a Linksys 16 port switch fed by a Linksys WRT54GP2 router also supporting Vonage
    Broadband connection is roadrunner
    DynDns configured at the router for my domain name using 'custom dns"
    The mail/web server is configured on the router using Port Range Forwarding
    UPnP is available on the router

    Now....How do I:

    1. Configure WHS to use my domain name - server1.mydomain.com as opposed to server1.homeserver.com?
    2. Configure remote services for WHS without buggering up the forwarding for the mail/web server? (I'm beginning to think that my mail server will need to go away if I wanted to use the remote access features)

    Curious but not committed:

    1. Operate a 2003 Server in the same environment for DNS and AD services

    I need step-by-step directions for the configuration issues if someone could be so kind as to help.
