RWW with SonicWall

I am having problems connecting to remote computers/servers using RWW? I can access RWW and login to the main page, but cannot connect to any computers.
I am running behind a SonicWall TZ 170 Which I had to reset because the Tech that installed it, left and took the logon credentials with him, I am not sure if this problem is directly related to the firewall or a SBS configuration issue. I ran CIECW wizard multiple times and cannot seem to gain any ground, I was able to connect internally via RWW after the firewall reset and now all of a sudden I can't even do that, but I can connect using RD internally. At this point my head is starting to spin And I am running out of ideas. Any guidance will be greatly appreciated!!!!!!!


Thank you

Well, let's start by looking at your IPCONFIG /ALL from the server.  Because if you can't use RWW internally then we need to find out why.

FYI, the following ports should be open on your Sonicwall:

25 - SMTP
443 - HTTPS (for RWW and OWA)
444 - SharePoint
1723 - PPTP VPN
3389 - RDP for remote administration
4125 - Remote Web Workplace

YIKES...

That wonderful IPV6 stuff...

You should ONLY have your Server's IP address listed for DNS.  Also, you can only have a single IP address assigned to your NIC.  Otherwise the SBS wizards don't work, and if you can't use the wizards you can't configure your server properly.

Jeffrey Kane - TechSoEasyPrincipal ConsultantCommented:
Well, I'm not entirely sure what those Pseudo-Interfaces are all about... but for your basic Network Interface, open up Network Connections and then the properties of the Network Interface.

Remove the IPV6 DNS entries, as well as the additional IP address entry from Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) > Advanced Settings.

See if IPV6 is installed in Add/Remove Windows Components Network Components.  If it is... get rid of it.

I have the nic set for the sonicwall ip address, using the nic as it's own gateway, with the sonic as DNS server
0
 
Jeffrey Kane - TechSoEasyPrincipal ConsultantCommented:
No, you should have the NIC's DNS entry set as the SBS's (10.183.142.2) with the Sonicwall's IP as the gateway.

Then you need to have your ISP's DNS IP's available to use in the CEICW as the Forwarders.

Here is what I have

TCP/IP Properties

Subnet Mask 255.0.0.0
Default 10.183.142.1  (firewall IP)


Primary DNS

10.183.142.2.

I also have ISP Primary and Secondary DNS set up in CEICW

Jeffrey Kane - TechSoEasyPrincipal ConsultantCommented:
Why are you using a subnet mask of 255.0.0.0?  Use 255.255.255.0 instead... you don't need that many available IPs.

Also, please post the complete IPCONFIG /ALL it's much easier for me to evaluate that.

That subnet mask was automatically entered for some reason, when I changed it I got an outside of scope warning. here is the new ipconfig /all

Okay, that looks much better!  Now run the CEICW again and make sure that you don't skip any sections by selecting "Do not change".  Also, make sure that you enable RWW on the Web Services Screen.

Okay, I ran CEICW again and reset everything, making sure that RWW was endabled, I still cannot connect to remote clients or servers, internally, OWA however is working.???

Jeffrey Kane - TechSoEasyPrincipal ConsultantCommented:
But you are getting to the RWW main menu?

When you joined your workstations to your domain, did you use http://UTEK-SERVER/connectcomputer?

Do you have other servers on your network?

Yes I can get to the main menu, and yes I did join the domain using http://connectcomputer (unjoined and rejoined again last night) this is a single server network.

Well, that's an easy one... you don't have port 4125 open on your router and pointed to your SBS.

therein lies the problem, I am using sonicwall enhanced and I have not found port forwarding anywhere, I had to create access rules, which I did, from WAN to LAN  using Primary WanIP with Remote Services (4125) to LAN Ip (10.183.142.2)

Jeffrey Kane - TechSoEasyPrincipal ConsultantCommented:
Well, then, download the Admin guide or the NAT Configuration Guide and learn how to configure it:  http://www.sonicwall.com/support/tz170_documentation.html

Or, remove the SonicOS Enhanced and revert back to Standard which is much easier to configure and will at least get you going for now.
