I am having a few minor issues with SBS2008 IPCOP and VMware...
I have configure VMware on my new SBS 2008 server, with IPcop running virtually within the sbs 2008 box.
I just follwed this guide http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r19782334-IPCop-in-VMWare-A-Howto
SBS 2008 (192.168.1.2
) IPCOP (RED)----Router (bridged PPPoe)----Internet
I can connect to web-proxy and browse the internet no problems.
I can connect to web interface from SBS 2008 and XP Clients.
So the connectivity is there.
The problem I am facing is in the SBS 2008 Console, when I try and find the internet connection SBS fails to find IPcop as my router.
SBS 2008 console gives me and option to manually setup the router and Server settings,
so I enter Router as 192.168.1.1
and server as 192.168.1.2
But it still fails to connect, and then cannot complete the wizard.
So I cannot get exchange 2007 working via the console...
One option looks like I should remove IPcop and setup the open router to SBS2008 (so SBS 2008 can find my router and configure for me), but I would prefer to have IPcop sitting on my perimeter (secured)...
Can someone please provide some suggestions/tips/walkthru on how I can complete this configuration...
Cheers and regards,
the silly one...
PS I have put IPcop into VMware so I make make use of SnapShots when I am installing the IPcop addons to secure my internet connection.
fyi i will be using copfilter, advproxy, URL filter (if HAVP fails), update accelerator and BOT.
