comment Split access on a Windows Server?
You can use the 2910 in failover mode rather than load balancing, i.e. have only WAN1 active and bring up WAN2 only if WAN1 has a link failure. However if you use the router this way you can't handle incoming connections on both WAN ports because obviously only one WAN port is active at a time.

comment Split access on a Windows Server?
Good news first: the 2910 does accept incoming connections on both ports and our 2910s at least don't lock up and need rebooting. It also copes fine with failure of either WAN1 or WAN2 and uses whichever port is working. Bad news: if you have a policy to force e.g. connections to port 80 via WAN2 then if WAN2 fails it will not dynamically modify the policy to use WAN1 instead. You would have to manually disable or change the policy.

comment Connecting with Samba to a Windows Share returns “NT_STATUS_DUPLICATE_NAME”
It's not a bug, it's deliberately designed that way. Possibly for security, though I'm not sure why precisely. I suppose it stops you accidentally connecting to the wrong server if you have rogue entries in the hosts file or duff DNS. Personally I put the registry hack on all of my servers.

comment ntbackup fails to save to NAS under windows sbs 2003
Hi Tim, I agree up to a point, and that point is the backup. I look after over a hundred SB2003 installations (and two SBS 2008s) so I have been burned by everything in SBS that can burn you, and I'd agree that as far as possible you should use the SBS tools provided by MS. However I would always roll my own backup.

comment SBS 2008 pop 3 connector won't download emails
A minute is about right for the timeout. After the POP3 server has received the RETR command and sent the message size it should then send the rest of the message without needing anything more from your server. Why it isn't working I don't know. I would try uninstalling Symantec. NB just disabling it isn't necessarily enough. In any case isn't the POP3 connector in SBS2k8 very limited functionality? I'm sure our chaps gave up on it and used a third party collector.

comment One way audio on SIP phone on one call direction.. where to look next?
Is it possible the VOIP module needs it's own IP address programming in? Apart from that I'm stumped.
