Hello,

I have a huge problem again with terminal services. I posted a question similar to this and recieved great help from an expert. I was on my way and ready to use the terminal server. now i have the same problem again which i can explain in more detail.

I have three servers but one is taken out of the equation as it is my SQl server and i am leaving it as it is.

So i have a front end server that conncts directly to my Router and the internet. This is my SBS 2003. It has two network cards. A 10.*.*.* for my WAN connection and a 192.*.*.* range for my internal network.

My storage server which is a 2003 server has a 192 Range and thats it. This server will be my terminal server and is already set up as a terminal server.

My problem is that when i remote in from outside my network i cannot  gain access to my terminal server. Im my registry i have my terminal server with original port 3389 and i have made an extra port 3391.

My SBS is still on orginal port 3389. I have configured my router correctly and i know it is right as for about an hour everything worked. I had to use a port forwarder programe but it did work. I took it off line and today ive have gone to make it a live server and no matter what i do i cannot gain access.

Please can someone help. thx

It seems your scenario is like below.


Internet --->  Router --->  SBS Front End --->    LAN ---- Terminal Server


Outside request come from router to your SBS which have default 3389 port. how come request go to terminal server, do you have put some port forwarding on SBS ?

Your scenariou should be like below. (you have to put two nic on terminal server as well)


Internet --->  Router --->  SBS Front End ---> LAN
                      |--------->  Terminal Server

Another solution configure routing and remote access on Front End server and  put forwarding 3389 traffic to terminal server.

Hi Srgilani


I will in the very near future put another card in the terminal server. Would i need to configure it to be on the 10 range so as each card will have a 192 range and a 10 Range?

What i would like to do then for now is maybe take your opinion and use routing and remote access. How would i go about this and also could i configure this as to only effect romote access?


thx

yes currently you have to configure routing and remote access , then in routing and remote access management console put port forwarding for port <remote port you want to use>

you just have to enable second card in routing and remote access when installed.

see section static routing for forwarding of traffic.

Oh ok, Just to finish off then when i install my second card do i configure  as follows:

Would i need to configure for each card to have a 10 range and a 192 range or do i just install the card and work through routing and remote access.
