Is that router doing NAT (doesn't seem so - and is it really ISDN)?
Those 30 IPs are public IPs from ISP subnet? Do you need to have public IPs on those computers?
No firewall (NAT router) inbetween Internet and machines or server?
You don't have to do NAT between en0 and en1 but they will need to be on different subnets.
If the Internet router does NAT you can route between en0 and en1.
Static route in Internet router needed to find the innermost en1 LAN.
I haven't tried Leopard "global" Bonjour or whatever it is called so I don't know what it does.
You need to configure/enable DNS on the server.
Hi Leif, thanks for helping.
No the router/modem doesn't do NAT.
Yes, those 30 IPS are public IPs from our ISP subnet. We do need some of the computers to have public IPs, or rather, we need to be able access them via apple remote desktop or Timbuktu, they are not serving anything up. If there is a way to do this without having public IPS, then even better!
I don't understand the part about NAT. From what I've read, I can use the new server as a gateway, and have NAT activated. The problem I have is that you can have port fowarding to only ONE machine, not many and I need to be able to access some computer with ARD or Timbuktu, so there's my problem.
If I need to configure DNS, what would be the basic setup? I've watched the Leopard server essentials tutorial on lynda.com and the guy teaching there says to put the DNS of the server to the adress of that server (self referencing), but what I don't understand is how is the server going to know about outside adresses if it doesn't have any DNS from the ouside (I'm thinking my ISP's DNS servers)?
Steve, I've never setup VPN and don't know much about it either. From what I understand, VPN is like a direct encrypted link between two computers on different networks. I don't know how to connect via VPN and can I do ARD via VPN? How could I access my computer from the outside of our network if the address is not public? That means I need to setup the DNS and add my fixed address to one of the entry in there, right? What whould I enter from my home computer to gain access to my computer on my workstation at the office behind that gateway? Right now, it's pretty easy, I just enter my IP address and I'm there, since the address is public, it's no problem. Firewalls are enabled on all computers by the way.
