Hi there,

can anyone explain how to forward ports using Remote Access/VPN which i use for sharing my internet connection.


I have a 3com router that is connected to one of my network cards on my server with a real public Ip 217.x.x.x
and the other network card on my server is a local ip of 192.168.0.1

One of my workstations has 1 network card with IP of 192.168.0.2

I wish to forward all traffic which uses ports 1046 to IP 192.168.0.2 ..

I don't think i need to forward ports on my router though as my network card has a Public IP rather than a local one..

So i think i need to just forward the windows 2003 remote access stuff

Any ideas or tutorials would be really grateful

Thanks

ian

Hi ianinspain,

You can do this with the RRAS service.
This is called Port Forwarding or Port Address Translation (PAT)

The instructions at http://www.serverwatch.com/tutorials/article.php/1474471 talk you through this.
I don't know what you've already got set up, so you'll have to interpret it slightly.

The bit you're interested in is the "Special Port Configuration", a little over half way down the doc.  Read through it thoroughly though, it's important to get it right :-)

Just to clarify your arrangement:

Internet --- router ---- (217.x.x.x) RRAS server (192.168.0.1) ---- (192.168.0.2) Workstation

I've not tested this myself, but it should "just work"
I'm happy to advise further though.
