Home Web/E-mail hosting with BT Business Broadband
Just a couple of quick questions regarding hosting one's own domain with BT
Business broadband. I've gone for option 2 with a static IP address and my own
domain name. The plan is to host my own website, mail server (MS Exchange) and
provide RDP/VPN access to my network. I will be using the router that is supplied as standard with BT Business broadband.
My queries are as follows:
1) I will need to put the LAN IP address of the server into the DMZ (De-Militarised Zone) of the router settings
2) I will need to contact BT's help desk to point the zone of my primary domain to the static IP address of my server
Do I need to enter any other static IP address settings as part of the Windows Server confirguation or is simply adding the LAN IP address into the router's DMZ enough to get my server talking to the outside world - initially by IP address, then as per question 2 above, once DNS records have propergated?
Any advice on the above is much appreciated.
