3Com ADSL Modem Router with stand alone Firewall, inaccessible by IP address from the outside world
Posted on 2006-06-12
I have a 3COM modem\router and a seperate 3com firewall.
I have a block of static IP addresses from BT.
I wish to set up my router so that my firewall's IP address is accessible publicly for SMTP\RDP etc...
at the moment the IP address from BT is setting as an 81.XX.XX.XX address. so i have set the router's internal IP address to be my BT static router IP, this is allowing me to browse as the outside address of my firewall is also from my static addresses from BT.
However, these addresses are not viewable if i try and RDP or telnet to them from outside...
