Subject: [exchangelist] slightly off mark but, I need help

OK Folks, I know this is an Exchange forum, but there are some very smart
folks here who may have a clue about this.


We just got word our ISP is discontinuing service to us.


We are a hospital, and don't require too much in the way of service.


We have a T1, host our own mail (Exchange 2000)(2-3000 messages/day), have
internal DNS servers, have a web site (not too many hits/month) and provide
internet access for ourselves (about 200 internet facing pc's) through our
own firewall. Our radiology dept sends too many images to use a cable
provider, and forget dialup service.


We do have many many VPN's set up for venders who need access to servers for
maintenance etc. (standard windows 2000 vpn)


Here's my question: What would it take for us to host our own ISP? Seems to
me our external ISP really provides mainly DNS services to us. web & mail
services we do on our own.

Has anyone here done something similar? What about getting addresses? We
would need a minimum of 25 Internet address assigned to us.

We have about 3 weeks to make a change over, and I need to come up with a
list of options/prices ASAP. any help would be hugely appreciated. Thanks
