I have a couple of questions about my fiber line and the Exchange server


My ISP said they will give me a fiber and I can connect the fiber using a
CAT5 cable to the fiber box (should be the fiber modem?). The also said
they will provide 5 static public Internet IP address. My question is how
can I connect these 5 static IP address for my IIS, Exchange, RRAS(VPN)? I
must have 5 NICs installed into my server or buy a new router? Which type
of the device should I use? Cisco router? Model number?  Could anybody
tell me the detailed procedure?


I have 4 domains now and have not been connected with each other:
a1.local, a2.local, a3.local, a4.local. And I have an Internet domain
abc.com. If I want to install Exchange server 2k on a1.local and create
email address using my Internet domain name such as face=Times New Roman
color=#0000ff jsmith@xxxxxxxx Does it mean that I must change a1.local to
abc.com? Is that meaning I must delete a1.local and create a new domain
abc.com? How can I connect my domain server to one of the public Internet
IP address my ISP provided (that means when I use ping command in the
Internet, it will ping my domain controller)? Install a new NIC and assign
the Internet IP address to the new NIC or I can redirect the IP packet
from the router to my server? Which Router should I use and the model

If I want to use VPN to connect my 4 domains, which device do I need?
Model number? I know I can assign the public IP address to one of my
server?s NICs to let this NIC wait for VPN calls but I don?t think it is
secure. Could I use a device such as route to let the VPN calls go to the
router first then let the router route the VPN package to my server or I
can use a hardware device called VPN server? Which brand and model number?
My client domain will use ADSL (dynamic IP address), is there any device
can start a VPN call to my server? Model number? If I use VPN router in
each domain then I will never need to use the Windows 2000 VPN function
because the VPN devices will be dealt with the VPN connection by itself?

Any idea will be appreciated. Thank you!
