Remote Network Configuration

By BPorter ·
I am in the developmental stage of incorporating our satellite office into our home office network.

Home office is configured as follows: PDC is NT4, SP6. Exchange server is NT 4, SP6, Ex 5.5, SP3. RAS server is NT 4, SP4 - RAS & VPN are supported. Total of 3 NT servers

Remote office is connected to internet via cable, home office via DSL.

Remote office network will change in April to a Windows NT ?? network (from Novell). We are planning to install Exchange ?? as well.

We want to be able to have the two exchange servers update/communicate regularly and seemlessly. To a lesser degree, users in the remote office will need access to data in the home office.

Any recommendations on how to 1) connect the exchange servers and2) the offices in general.

TIA,
Byron

Also, remote office will have up to 15 users. Home office is about 40.

I guess, first of all, I don't see the need for an Exchange server at the remote office unless you need to facilitate internal communication at that office during connectivity outages. But if you're committed to providing Exchange at the office, for whatever reason, the Site Connector should work just fine over VPN.
When you build the Exchange server, do it on-site with the VPN tunnel up and just connect to the domain and establish it as a new site within the same domain.

The network with which I now work provides an NT server at each remote office and it is set up as a BDC and provides WINS and DHCP services to that office. But we don't provide an Exchange server until the user count reaches 100 or so. We use a single domain model and it actually works quite well as described.
