New to all this, so please bear with me. SBS6 SP2, SBS w/iPrint on
one
server, BM 3.7 & GWIA on the other. DHCP server running on the SBS
box.
Trying to get iPrint set up, but don't have any idea on how to set up
DNS.
Loading NDPS manager with /dnsname=prnmanager.choctaweng.com comes
back with
a "cannot resolve name" error. I can go to http://192.168.0.1:631/ipp
from
a local pc and get the appropriate login/download client page, but I
can't
do it from outside, even with all BM filters off and Enforce Access
Rules
turned off. I do have filter exceptions for ports 631 and 443 as well
as an
Access rule to allow port 631 and 443 traffic through.

I temporarily created a DNS server on my SBS box, and it shows up as
DNS_Fileserver, loaded and ready, with a DNS Server Domain Name of
choctaweng.com, our public domain name. Should I use a different
name?
Will this cause a conflict with the WWW registered domain name?

I know I have to create an A-record and maybe a CNAME for my
"prnmanager.choctaweng.com" url to be visible to the outside. When I
go to
create a new Zone, I get prompted for a bit of info I don't
understand, like
Zone Domain Name and whether its a Primary or Secondary. Went through
the
docs several times, but they leave a lot to be desired for the
untrained.
Searched Novell's knowledgebase without much success either. Any
simple
1,2,3... advice out there?

As an alternative, I also have 3 available unused static IPs on my BMserver. Would it be better to just use one of those? I guess I would
have
to go to to my ISP and have another CNAME and A-record added to point"prnmanager.choctaweng.com" to one of the unused static IPs. If I did
that,
would I then static NAT that IP to my fileserver IP? Would my
printers
still show up as ipp://192.168.0.1/ipp/<prnname>? The rest of the
iPrint
install looks fairly straightforward, but I know little to nothing
about
DNS. If I could get around using it at all, that would be even
better. Any
help would be greatly appreciated.
