2003 small business server - Routing and Remote Access Setup

I am setting up 2003 Small business server in my test lab. I want to enable routing and remote access. Right now it has a local IP of 192.168.1.7. We have a linksys router as well. My server has one NIC card. I know i can set up VPN access to the server either through:

1. Network connections -> create new connection -> Advanced connection->check the radio box to accept incoming connections.
or
2. Configure routing and remote access. I have to click the custom configuration radio button. All the others require me to have two NIC cards. So i do custom, then check the VPN Check box, and then finish.


I have a couple questions.

1. Which VPN connection should i use. Create new connection to allow remote access, or configure the Routing and Remote Access.
2. What ports do i open up on my linksys router. i thought it was 1723 but it doesnt seem to do anything. On a client outside our network i tried creating a vpn connection with the external IP of our lynksys. I get the login box coming up with the username and password, but nothing works. Keeps saying no answer. Is there any configuration i need to do on the VNP server here. Let me know if there is any other information you need. I'm sure i am leaving something out. Thank you all.

P. S.  If you have nothing under Routing and Remote Access then you haven't run the Configure Remote Access Wizard yet.  You MUST run all items on the To-Do list to complete the installation and configuration of your server.  It's quite possible at this point you may need to completely reinstall the server if you didn't follow the installation instructions.  For instance, if you went to Windows Update before you completed the To-Do list, you may have corrupted your install.

Legend has it that it takes THREE times to install an SBS before one gets it right.

On the Linksys do you have PPTP passthrough enabled?   This allows the GRE Protocol (#47, not port 47) along with port 1723. Depending on the model router, check in Advanced, Filters, or Security, VPN.

Is this in an Active Directory Domain or Workgroup Environment. If it's a Domain, I believe it requires an additional Group that is setup when you use the RASS snapin.

Cheers,

PPTP Passthrough is enabled on the linksys. This Server is set up as Active Directory Domain. It really doesn't need to be because some of the clients at this site are using XP home. When I set up this 2003 Small business server I just went through with the default settings. I am hoping to eventually get everyone at this site on XP pro and active directory soon for security reasons. All they really need this for now is for a file server, accessing when they are home, and an invoicing application that runs on the server.

Where do i set the group for the RASS Snapin?

And does it matter which VPN schema i use (Routing and remote access or just allowing remote access under network places)? I want the simplest approach, as there will only be a couple clients connecting here and there.

Thanks!

Darn,  I was hoping it was the PPTP passthrough that was the problem.  

I haven't set up the server side of a VPN recently and don't have access to one to test with.

Maybe someone else can comment.

Are you running ISA server on the SBS box?

Jeffrey Kane - TechSoEasyPrincipal ConsultantCommented:
geeksinsneaks,

The problem is that you are using Standard Server 2003 configuration procedures for an SBS.  You can't do that.  You need to use the wizards!

Since SBS is a pre-configured server environment, and has elements and roles that you would never combine on a single Standard Server 2003, the wizards make sure that you keep everything configured properly and don't break one SBS part to fix another.

See http://sbsurl.com/itpro for an overview of SBS and it's gotcha's.  Once you understand the design of SBS you'll like the wizards (which are really just GUI scripts).

So... to configure the VPN/RRAS run the Configure Email and Internet Connection Wizard (CEICW) followed by the Configure Remote Access Wizard.  I mention here that you should run the CEICW because it will auto-configure your Linksys Router if you have UPnP enabled on it.

For an overview of this please see http://sbsurl.com/ceicw and http://sbsurl.com/msicw

Then, the Configure Remote Access Wizard will create a special SBS VPN client which can be downloaded remotely from Remote Web Workplace, or you can just copy it to a USB drive or floppy.... you'll find it at http://localhost/Remote/sbspackage.exe on your server after you run the wizard.

FYI, when you said that the server really doesn't need to be set up as Active Directory Domain, you should know that you can't install an SBS any other way.

Also, does each client machine that will connect through VPN need a client access license? The computer i was using to test the VPN connection is a Windows 2003 Server at another location.

No... not if your CALs were added as USER CALs (the most common way to add).  However if they are DEVICE CALs then you would need one.  Are these people who only work remotely?

Well, i purchased this server with 5 CALs included. Do i still need to add these after i install windows? During the windows install, i did per user. The people who will need to vpn in work in the office, but some have laptops and will need to connect to get files when they are home.
0
 
Jeffrey Kane - TechSoEasyPrincipal ConsultantCommented:
What do you mean after you install Windows?  You nean SBS?  There is no option on the first 5 cals, they are either/or.  How many people are in your company?  You will need a CAL for each one.

Basically User CALs are all that's necessary.  If a user logs in at their desktop and then via VPN it only takes one CAL.  However, I should note that users who have a desktop at the office (not laptops) should not use VPN, they should use Remote Web Workplace.  (http://sbsurl.com/rww) This will allow them to work directly on their desktop machine as if they were at their desk in the office.

The VPN client is really only for Laptop users.  See http://sbsurl.com/mobile for the complete mobility overview.

Where are you connecting from?  This looks like the IP Address subnet of the router at the remote location is the same as that of your SBS's.

Try to connect to the VPN from within the LAN first.  That will tell you if you have the server configured properly.  Then, if you can't connect from outside it would most likely be a router issue.

NOw i just have my PC set up as a workgroup pc and not on any domain. Do i need to change this?
0
 
Jeffrey Kane - TechSoEasyPrincipal ConsultantCommented:
You need to move the DHCP service from your router to the SBS.  That way your workstations will not have external DNS servers or DNS suffix's and will instead resolve through your server as is necessary on an SBS network.

So, disable DHCP on the router.  Reinstall the DHCP Service on the Server and then rerun the Configure Email and Internet Connection Wizard to allow your SBS's DHCP service to re-enable itself.  

Then, I have to question how you joined your workstation to the domain to begin with... because with that configuration you couldn't possibly have used the required method of http://<servername>/connectcomputer.  You will need to correct this in order to be able to have the workstations be configured properly.

Please follow these steps to correct:

The following needs to be done with the client machine:
1.  Log in with THAT machine's LOCAL administrator account.
2.  Unjoin the domain into a WORKGROUP
3.  Change the name of the computer
4.  Delete or rename the following directory C:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows Small Business Server\Clients if it exists
5.  Ensure that DHCP is enabled and there are  no manually configured network settings
6.  Reboot

Then on the server, from the Server Management Console:
1.  Remove the client computers if it still shows in the Client Computer screen on the Server Management Console
2.  Add the client with it's NEW name using the Add Computer wizard

Then, go back to the client machine and join the domain by opening Internet Explorer and navigating to http://servername/connectcomputer

My workstation is not on any domain. Like i stated it is just part of a workgroup at this point. I didnt think this would matter as some of my client's workstations at the site will have XP home. I didnt think you could join an XP Home computer to a domain.

Jeffrey Kane - TechSoEasyPrincipal ConsultantCommented:
You're right you can't join XP Home to a domain.  If they have SBS, then they should upgrade their workstations to XP Pro because otherwise you really lose most of the functionality of having SBS.

But let me try to at least sort out what you're trying to do by connecting within the LAN with a computer that isn't a member of the domain.

Have you run the "Configure Remote Access Wizard" yet?

When you are connecting to the VPN from within the LAN, did you create a new VPN connection and use 192.168.1.107 as the address to connect to?

Jeff

geeksinsneaksAuthor Commented:
Correct. Hopefully they will be upgrading to XP Pro soon. As for now they just basically need a share for files, run an application off the server, and to connect remotely from home to access files. I was trying to connect to the local IP of 192.168.1.107 when getting that error. I have run the Configure Remote Access Wizard. I will try running it again. Maybe there was something i missed. Ill let you know how it goes. Thanks!

Jeffrey Kane - TechSoEasyPrincipal ConsultantCommented:
Run it again, and then grab the updated Small Business Server Connection Manager from the RWW website or just directly from the link I provided above.

The problem with not having XP Pro is that when users want to connect from home, they can't use Remote Web Workplace to connect to their office desktop machines since XP Home doesn't support remote access.  This would make a rather cumbersome to synchronize files if they are also working from a home computer.  I'd suggest that shared files be set up in SharePoint (http://companyweb) if you want to at least give them some semblance of order.

OK. I removed DHCP From my router, re-ran the Configure email and internet on the SBS. It asked me if i wished to have small business server configure the router for me for SBS to run properly. I clicked yes to that. It gave me an error when trying to configure the firewall. I clicked yes to continue configuring eveything else.

Now from my client machine here. I am still on a workgroup and not a domain. Do i need to be on the domain for me to connect? If i go to http"//dc-centratel now, which is the small business server from within my LAN, i get to the homepage, with the welcome screen etc. When i click on the network configuration wizard. I click that, the next screen has the "Connect to the network now" link. I click on that and get a blank white screen.

However, if i click on the "Remote web workplace" on the welcome screen, i do get to the SBS Login page, where i can then log in to the server.

Isnt there a way i can just set something up so the clients can VPN into the server, just by using a basic vpn and not the remote web workplace, then once VPN's in, can just connect to the share on the server?

Thanks

Jeffrey Kane - TechSoEasyPrincipal ConsultantCommented:
You need to go and find out what the error was, you'll find the log at C:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows Small Business Server\Support\icwlog.txt

If people are connecting from their home computers you really do not want them using VPN because then you are connecting computers whcih are not controlled to your network... which means that viruses can EASILY transmit across the VPN to the server, and then you have no data for them to connect to at all.

But even so... what I had recommended above was for you to go to the Remote Web Workplace main menu and get the VPN Client... you stopped at the login screen for RWW... how about going beyond that to see what RWW really is.

As for Going into remote web workspace further, i can remote into the server ok. So this will be the better way of having them connect i am assuming. Also, about the DHCP not showing up under Admin tools. IS this ok?

Jeffrey Kane - TechSoEasyPrincipal ConsultantCommented:
Remoting into the server and RWW are two completely different things, and NO it's NOT a better way of having them connect.  You should NEVER allow users to access the server desktop.  Plus, SBS2003 does not support Terminal Services in Application Mode... RDP is only for administrative purposes.

So, go to http://dc-centratel/Remote and log in to see what RWW is all about.

Also, it is NOT okay that DHCP is not showing up under Admin Tools... that's what's probably causing your CEICW errors as well.  You need to reinstall it, so open Help & Support on the SBS and search for "Installing a DHCP server" to get the detailed instructions on how to do this.

I get a Pop up saying that i should connect to the internet and install the latest criticall updates. Should I do this now, or wait till i'm done with the To Do List? Thanks

No, do not install any updates until you are done with the list.
