  • Question

  • I´m running Active Directory LAB with multiple servers on VMware ESXi and I would like to setup DA. I can use UAG license from my work. The point is, that I have only a free public domain availble, which is xxx.homedns.org from Dyndns service. I´m not instrested in registering full domain only because of DA. Another problem might be, that from my ISP I cannot receive 2 different public IPs for one NIC. So my question is, that is DA even possible in my circumstances? I have enterprice PKI running.

  • Hello,

    Using xxx.homedns.org as public domain name for DA is not a problem, but keep in mind to got a public certificate associated to this public domain name.

    However DA need two consecutive public IP in order to work, in your case unfortunately you couldn't deploy DA until you got them.

    Take care that for these public IP you can't use NAT or PAT.
