|Retrieving emails via the Internet
on Tuesday, January 30, 2007 at 10:15:48 AM (EST)
I have 2 users, user 1 and user 2, on a local network with 602 LANSuite running as an email server. The IP addresses of the 3 machines are 192.168.1.11(user 1 - DHCP allocated), 192.168.1.12 (user 2 - DHCP allocated) and 192.168.1.200 (server on fixed address). My email server connects to my ISP via a Draytek router (on IP address 192.168.1.1). It tells me that my WAN address is, let's say, a.b.c.d. This setup works fine.
What I want to be able to do is for user 1 to be able to access his emails when he is not at base, via the internet somehow. Obviously he can;t use address 192.168.1.200 to access the server. SO presumably there needs to be some NAT translation or something similar? I haven't managed to figure out how to do this. I assume it's fairly easy, but don't know quite how to start.
I'd appreciate any ideas (in simple terms)?
