Help opening Port 407, 8080 in Windows SBS 2003

I’m running Windows SBS 2003 Standard Edition with two NIC’s.  I need to open up Port 407 n the firewall to allow for Netopia’s Timbuktu remote  program to run.  I also need to open up port 8080 for a web database that a programmer is doing for us. I went thru the routing and remote access console in administration tools and added a new service. I have the port 407, 8080 UDP and TCP pointing to the internal private IP address of the server.  We still cannot connect.

Any suggestions?

Thanks for your help

You need to run the Configure Email and Internet Connection Wizard again, adding those services to the "Web Services" page, along with the appropriate port numbers.

I forgot to mention that I did run the CEICW first adding those two services in the "Web Services" page. It didn't seem to work that is why I ran the Routing and Remote Access console and fowarded the ports to my internal IP address.  

Also, no ports are being block on my hardware netopia router.

No, you don't want them forwarded to your internal IP with RRAS.  You want them forwarded to your EXTERNAL IP from your ROUTER.  Sorry, I missed that in your initial question... if you have a netopia router, then most likely ALL ports are being blocked... or at least they should be with the few exceptions as follows:

25 - SMTP
443 - HTTPS (for RWW and OWA)
444 - SharePoint
1723 - PPTP VPN
3389 - RDP for remote administration
4125 - Remote Web Workplace

and the couple that you want to add...  These are configured in a Netopia router as PinHoles.

(although, actually, I don't understand why folks use TimBukTu when SBS offers Remote Web Workplace as well as Remote Administration on the server).
