Set_up and testing a 2003 RAS

I have a 2003 ras server setup and would like to know which ports to open on the router/firewall. I read its 3389 but because this is common knowledge its best to use a different port. So, do I setup the router to open say port 60,000 then redirect it to 3389 so the ras can find it? Is there anyway to test the RAS from within a network?
Many thanks for this, first time using ras!

Hi AndyinJapan,

RRAS doesn't use port 3389 - that is RDP

You cannot change the port for inbound RRAS (PPTP VPN UDP-1723 GRE-47) connections, but you can for RDP (remote desktop)

What exactly are you trying to do?

Many thanks Red,

Remote access as in terminal server?

or remote access as in VPN?
Remote access as a vpn. I need to allow workers who have xp pro machines to log in from outside of our network.
Many thanks red, sorry to be so thick!!!

Yes, makes sense....
Now, all I have to do is log onto www.10.10.2.3 or my outside router interface in ie and bingo?
That easy?
thanks so much Red..
Andy
well, you would need to go to http://10.10.2.3 if you wanted to access the router and change the configuration for a VPN

What router is it?

Hi Andy,

I can't find English instructions for that router, so I don't know how much I can help with that

It should be relatively straight forward

Hi Red,
I found this,

Looks like I can setup without a RAS???
Thanks
Andy
That is another option.

I would be more inclined to use RRAS though, as it will use windows authentication (As opposed to the router which will want to use its own authentication)
thank for all your help Red,
Kindest regards
Andy

You are most welcome.
