Setup a server behind dsl modem & router

September 22, 2011 at 13:58:22
Specs: Windows 7
I want to setup SQL Server on my internal home network, and make it available to my colleagues.
My setup:
ADSL 4mb connected to my ISP via DHCP.
DSL modem, D-Link 500b.
Belkin N750 Wireless router
Win 2008 Server with SQL Server.

What do I need to do to allow my colleagues to connect to the SQL server from their computers, in their offices (not on my network)?

For example, because I have a DHCP address from my ISP, do I need to use something like DynDNS to track my IP address?
If this can work, how do my colleagues access SQL Server?

One way would be to engage RDP role [would need to buy licenses] and them rdp to your server to then run whatever front end for the sql server you design.

Another way would be to do a web page hosted on your server and have a button/program linking to the sql server.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
