    Hi All

    Not been on for a while. Ive taken a notion for article writing via my blog.

    Anyway as I'm studying SBS 2003 Ive decided to create a blog entry dedicated to it. I also write on other stuff but mainly concentrating on SBS at the mo.

    You can have a look at:

    http://lanarkshireitservices.co.uk/blog/category/small-business-server-2003/

    The blog is new but we all gotta start somewhere. Please feel free to post / write anything (within reason lol) and all comments / articles are welcome.

    I'm NO guru on any subject. Just documenting my learning in the blog mad age

    ciao

    Looks good mate.

    Word of warning though...

    If the client apps folder is moved you will have problems installing SBS SP1 as it tries up update that directory.

    Also are you running SBS premium in the demo? Looks like you have patched the external NIC into a router with no firewall. :eek:

    excellent advice. thanx.

    ok will alter the things you mentioned
    let me clarify:
    if i install sbs sp1 and the client apps folder is not the default then things will get messed up?

    demo is sbs std edition and just for the demo i patched the external nic to a simple netgear router (firewall function included). were u refering to any firewall or the one that comes with premium (ISA)?

    Thanx again

    Yeah, SBS SP1 needs the client apps folder in the correct place.

    As for the firewall what kinda Netgear is it mate?

    hi buddy

    its a netgear modem / router / firewall / dhcp type for home use

    cant remember the model number as im not a home the now

    but does this mean that a firewall on the router (regardless of make/model) is ok for the wan nic?

    cheers

    You don’t really need a external and internal NIC if you are patching into a Netgear which has a firewall. Just use one NIC and configure the firewall on the Netgear as needed. Also DHCP should be on the SBS if possible.

    Possibly publishing the address meant that more people accessed it, and he went over his quota?
