I have a SBS 2003 that  I have just set up. It has two NICs one for the LAN and one for the WAN. The WAN NIC connects to a router which has a pinhole that allows traffic through to the SBS WAN NIC and points to a specific port.

How do I open that specific port on the SBS server?

I have tried the Internet & Email wizard but it does not seem to allow for anything outside of, well, internet & email.

Thanks

I think I have it.

server mangt
--advanced mangt
----services & apps
------routing & remote access
--------IP routing
----------NAT/Basic Firewall
------------network connection right click
--------------properties --> services & ports --> add

I used the port number and 127.0.0.1 as the IP, is that correct?

Thanks

Yep, that's it!  But you could have also added it as a service in the CEICW (Configure Email and Internet Connection Wizard) which would have configured this same thing.

unfortunately it doesn't work.

Remote clients can see the CAD license manager but can not get a license. Clients with access to the internal network pick up a license just fine.

Is the CAD license manager running on the SBS?  Or on another machine?

It runs on the SBS.

Clients that can see the LAN nic can pick up a license fine, (pointing to the LAN nic or the WAN nic)

clients outside of the LAN can see the server, just not pick up a license.

The license manager uses LMTOOLS.exe

it is not specifically designed for SBS-2003, but, it works LAN side, so it should work. I suspect that my ignorance with routers ans NAT is the root of the problem.

I'd run the CEICW and add it as a service.  See http://sbsurl.com/ceicw

I got it to work. I needed more ports open than I originally thought.

Thanks
