Port Forwarding and Windows Domain Controller
Posted on 2005-05-02
Hi, I've a Network of about 15 workstations (Net: 192.168.0.0, dynamic) and 1 server (192.168.0.2 fixed, with Windows 2000 Adv. Server, DHCP on) that is used as a Domain Controller. Then the computers are connected by a switch and a router (192.168.0.1 fixed, SMC Barricade, No DHCP) connects them to internet (ADSL). All is working fine, the domain controller use DNS forwarding to the ISP's ones for IP-Name translation. The big problems starts here: I need to use one machine as a FTP server (TCP port 21) When I try the Port forwarding option of the SMC Barricade (IE: Local Machine: 192.168.0.112, Internal Port: 21, External Port: 21) it seems not to be working, outside the network you cannot use the service... (of course you can use this service inside the local network but this isn't what i really need) I don't know if there is a problem with the Domain Controller or if I need to set up some things on it... For that thing I ask you any help that you can give.
Than you very much
