Configuring the Remote Web Workplace to coexist with other Web Sites

The Remote Web Workplace can coexist with your company's public Web site.

Your company's public Web site is hosted on the computer running Windows Small Business Server

If your company's domain name is configured to point to the server and you have installed it at the root of the default Web site, users can type the following address to connect to your company's public Web site:

www.RegisteredDomainName (where RegisteredDomainName is your company's registered domain name).

To access the Remote Web Workplace, users can type the following address:

www.RegisteredDomainName/remote (where RegisteredDomainName is your company's registered domain name).

Your company's public Web site is hosted by your Internet service provider (ISP)

With this configuration, your company's domain name is generally configured to point to the servers at your ISP. In this case, do one of the following:

  • Use a link to the server's external IP address (for example, 10.255.255.255/remote).
  • Use a link to the server's external name (for example, ServerName/remote, where ServerName is the name of your server).
  • Create a link on the company's public Web site that redirects users to one of the address formats just listed.

You do not have a public Web site

Even if you do not have a public Web site, purchasing an Internet domain name will help your users to more easily access the Remote Web Workplace. If you own a domain name, you can configure it to point to the server and provide links to the Remote Web Workplace in the form of www.RegisteredDomainName/remote.
