How to reach IIS on a domain server inside of a Small Business Server domain.
Posted on 2007-03-29
Small Business Server 2003 Premium (Domain Controller)
Windows Server 2003 (Domain Server)
The provider of our most important, most used 3rd party software has a IIS product that provides access to the software/data remotely via the internet. That's the good news. The bad news is that they do not support installing the IS software on a domain controller. We have installed the software on our Server 2003 and it runs/looks great (when viewing from inside the domain) but we have been unable to reach the Server 2003 from the outside via the internet. We have the Company Web (intranet) running and can access the Company Web from outside but when the link/url on the Comapny Web page is clicked the user gets a page cannot be displayed.
Does anyone know how to reach the IIS on the Server 2003 machine when coming from the outside via the internet?
We are using a dual NIC configuration. The external nick has a routeable IP address but all the other computers/servers in the domain have un-routeable IP address (172.....). We do not have a domain name that will route someone to the SBServer, only the IP address will do that. All of our domain names route to our 3rd party outside ISPs.
