I have a Windows 2003 Small Business Server behind a Linksys router. The server is currently set as the DMZ.

Clients connected to the SBS domain need ports forwarded through the SBS machine. How is this done?

First of all, you should not have the server set as the DMZ.

Secondly, if it is in a DMZ there's no need to forward ports because they are ALL open.

So... can you be more specific about what you are trying to accomplish here?

as the other experts already stated, get the sbs server OUT of the DMZ zone, you are inviting hackers that way ... .
The ports need to be forwarded on your linksys router.
These are the ports that need to be open:
Also make sure you run the CEICW and check the appropriate things that need to be available from the outside.
