I have a Windows Server 2003 & a Windows Small Business Server 2003, that both appear to be blocking a port that I need to open.
I didn't know that the servers had a built in firewall, until I dug deep and found the GPO that mentioned a firewall. I have been doing some reading and I think I am running an IPSec policy that is the main culprite of my port blocking.
The situation is as follows:
The Server 2003 connects to the net through the SBS 2003 server, as it is the dns server and domain controller. I have cisco vpn software installed on the Server 2003 machine, and I can connect to the required site using the VPN software, but I can't access port 7685 (required for the site I am connecting to). So, if I can connect, obviously it is not the VPN software that is being blocked, but rather port 7685.
How do I open port 7685 (or any port for that matter) on both Server 2003 and SBS 2003?
If you need more info to answer this question, please be specific and I'll get the answers for you.
Thanks for your help.
