We want to launch an internal website that only can be accessed from our network clients. This includes remote users. Is there an "allow these IPs" list somewhere using is on a Windows 2003 standard? Or will I need to create firewall rules for this?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

From IP Addressing perspectives, use one of the internal IP you use at your office. From routing perspectives, as long as there is a route inside of your network, your local and remote users should be able to get to server.

Make sure that there is no NAT, a static private to public NAT, on your firewall for the IP you decide to use for web server.

    How about the remote users with dynamic IPs? You can provide a VPN access, though, in my opinion, an https site with remote user's authentication is better.

    You can setup ip access restrictions on IIS for your site. and You can also lock down the access with file permissions.
