GroupWise 5.5 server move

By EPAIT ·
I run 2 separate LAN's both with DSL connections at each office. We are losing our DSL connection at the remote office where my GroupWise 5.5 server resides. Clients access the email server via TCP/IP to a public IP address. I plan to move the email server to my office to keep the entire organization from losing email for 7 days until the DSL installation takes place. I use DHCP on my network and my router does not support both Dynamic & Static. Therefore
the remote office will lose accessto email. I am probably going to set up a proxy for all users at the remote office so I can check their email. Does anyone have a better solution? Presently you can use a dial up connection at home and access the GroupWise sever via TCP/IP while on the Internet if the GW client is installed on your PC. But with private addressing.... this won't be possible. I wanted to configure a dial up at the remote office to connect to the Internet and access GW 5.5 via TCP/IP. The remote office DSL will go down Aug 1, 2001 and won't be installed until Aug 7th. This is a short period....but I run the network for a CPA firm and Aug 15th is a tax cut off date!

thanks,
Rob

GroupWise 5.5 server move

I'm a little unclear on how the remote office will get to the internet without the DSL, but assuming they have another way, dial-up or whatever, you're looking for a very temporary solution, and one that won't involve a lot of expence or re-configuration. The first answer might be to set up internet email accounts, Hotmail, yahoo or some other, then set a rule up in each mailbox to foward all mail to that account. Users can then just go to the Hotmail account and read their messages. When they get access to their GW mailboxes,the messages will still be there, but not their replies. The second way might be to use www.mail2web.com. the service can be configured to get mail from many sources. I use it to get my mail from my home account when I'm at work, and from my work account when I'm at home.
Hope that helps.
