  • Wireless SBS 2003

    Hi,

    Can my SBS2003 be wireless or does it have to have a wired internet cable?



    Thanks in advance

    Andy

    SBS is independent of the network media -- as long as it supports TCP/IP, you can use wired, wireless or carrier pigeon

      Ossian is technically correct, but I recommend using a NIC with a fixed IP, a small (wireless - if desired) router that connects to the ISP, and a plan that includes a fixed Internet IP address. In that kind of configuration, you actually only need to open up ports 443 and 4125 on the router. For e-mail you can work with a smarthost, so the router is only opened on port25 to the smarthost. That, plus running the CEICW, leaves SBS in the basic secure, fully functional situation suitable for most small businesses.
