This is a new setup. SBS 2003 (2 NIC), Netgear VPN Firewall FVS318 and a static IP from my ISP.

I can access the internet from my server but could not ping the server from outside. I want to be able to access the server remotely. The following is my DNS server setting on the nic.

Server Local Arean Connections

IP: 192.168.16.2
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Default: 192.168.16.1
DNS server: 192.168.16.2
WINS server: 192.168.16.2

Internet NIC

IP:10.10.1.9
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Default gateway
DNS server: 192.168.16.2
WINS server: 192.168.16.2

The following is the configuration in the netgear router:

Static IP (static) 66.239.167.135
subnet: 255.255.255.224
Gateway: 66.239.167.129

DNS: 65.106.1.196
2 DNS: 65.106.7.196

DHCP disabled.


I wonder where i went wrong and any help will be greatly appreciated. Many Thanks

Not related to your problem, but the Internet NIC doesn't have a gateway. If in fact that is how you wish to connect to the Internet the gateway should be configured on it and removed from the LAN/"Local Area Connections" NIC. Also the Netgear's LAN IP would have to be in the 10.0.1.0 subnet. I am guessing with that gateway the Netgear has a LAN IP of 192.168.16.1 and your Internet connection is through the "Server Local Area Connection".

However to address your problem, in order to connect remotely to the server you need to set up a VPN. There are two common methods in this case:
1 )Enable RRAS on the server and make it a VPN server allowing remote connection by staff using the Windows built-in VPN client. In this case the Netgear needs to be configured to forward VPN traffic to the server on port 1723
2) Make the Netgear the VPN endpoint, a VPN router, and using the Netgear ProSafe VPN client connect directly to it , allowing complete access to the network. This option is more secure and allows slightly better performance.

In order to perform option 1 on the SBS open the computer management console, and then under Internet and E-mail, run the "Configure remote access" wizard. Then log onto the Netgear and configure it to forward port 1723 to the SBS. For specifics go to http://www.portforward.com click on FVS318 and then on the resulting page click on Point to Point Tunneling
On the client computer configure the Windows VPN client. See:
