Introduction to Small Business Server 2003 Part 2

  1. 1. Small Business Server B siness Se e Part 2 Presented by : Robert Crane BE MBA MCP director@ciaops.com director@ciaops com Computer Information Agency http://www.ciaops.com Agenda Week 1 – What is SBS / Setup Week 2 – Using & configuring SBS Week 3 - Troubleshooting 2
  2. 2. Week 2 Agenda Connecting to Internet Remote access Setting up user network user Setting up network workstations Setting up monitoring Setting up backups Faxing Sharepoint 3 The plan Workstation Remote User Tape Drive Switch ADSL Router SB Server Internet Fax Modem 4
  3. 3. SBS supported connection methods Broadband connection with local router. Direct broadband connection. Broadband connection with user authentication ( PPoE ). Dial up. 5 Dial up • Up to 56k Bps speed ( slow ) p p p ). • Cheap. • Local call cost on every connection. • No additional firewall protection. • Di l up must configured on server. Dial t fi d LAN Switch Modem SB Server Internet 6
  4. 4. Broadband – Local router • Fast. • Normally used for servers with a single network card • Always on. • No additional firewall protection. • Unable to use SBS as additional firewall • More complex to maintain. Switch SB Server DSL or Internet 7 cable modem Broadband – User authentication • Fast. • ISP login details configured on server. • Always on. • No additional firewall protection. • Connection must be configured on server. • More complex to maintain. LAN Switch SB Server DSL or Internet 8 cable modem
  5. 5. Direct Broadband • Fast. • No ISP login details to maintain. • Always on. • Additional firewall protection. • Connection doesn’t have to be configured on server. • Internet connection load maintained independent of server. • More reliable and easier to configure / troubleshoot. LAN Switch SB Server Router / Firewall Internet 9 Server Management 10
  6. 6. 11 Web domain names Appears far more professional professional. Cheap and portable ( ie can move between Internet providers ). Is easier to remember than a static IP address. Can have multiple domain names pointing to same or different servers. 12
  7. 7. Need to know Connection method. method ISP login / password if required. IP address of router. ISP DNS addresses. Remote access options ( Remote Web Workplace, Outlook Web Access, etc ). Whether plan to use server for receiving Internet emails. 13 Connect to the Internet 14

  13. 13. Connect to the Internet 25 Connect to the Internet 26
  14. 14. Connect to the Internet 27 Hardware firewall config Need to allow following ports through hardware firewall to SBS machine ( router port forwarding ) – Port 21 = File Transfer Protocol ( FTP ) – Port 25 = Internet emails – Port 80 = Web site – Port 110 = Allow POP3 to Exchange – Port 500, 1701, 1723 = VPN protocols – Port 443 = Permit secure web connections – Port 444 = External Sharepoint access – Port 3389 = Terminal Services – Port 4125 = Remote Web Workplace 28
  15. 15. Port forwarding No forwarding Firewall / router X Internet SB server Port forwarding Firewall / router Web : 80 Email : 25 Internet SB Server Secure : 443 Remote : 3389 29 RWW : 1425 Less open ports the better Minimum open ports – Port 443 = Permit secure web connections – Port 4125 = Remote Web Workplace 30
  16. 16. SBS Certificate SBS creates its own encryption certificate so that remote traffic is protected. This certificate is not authenticated by “trusted third parties” like Verisign. When you access SBS remotely you will prompted with a warning about the certificate. To overcome this warning in future simply install the certificate onto the device. 31 SBS Certificate 32
  17. 17. Connect to the Internet Demo 33 Corporate web site Use an external hosting business, business unless you run a back end database. – Web sites are most subject to attack. – Web site traffic can slow link. – If your SBS is down your web presence isn’t down. – Hosting companies have faster internet links. – Problem with web site won’t affect SBS. 34
  18. 18. Remote Access - VPN Layer 1 y Data Data IPSEC VPN = Port 500 L2TP VPN = Port 1701 PPTP VPN = Port 1723 Encryption Encryption Virtual Private Network Layer 2 Layer 3 SB Server ADSL Router Remote User Internet 35 Remote Access - VPN 36
