how am i able to open ports on my sbs 2003 ? routing and remote access is for a VPN ? but say I wanted to open port for azurueus how would i go about doing so ? I have everything running thru my server i do have a linksys router but firewall is not active and nat is not active it is all going thru my server ? I was just wondering how you go about port forwarding like in a linksys router ? do I use IIS ? and is terminal services any good for remote ? or does anyone have anything else to suggest ? thanks for all your help ?

           Hi redbugsbunny
                   RRAS is for VPN and various remote access. You do not have to open a port for application, application opens an unused port for itself. All you have to do is
                  *Make sure that port is not blocked by a firewall
                  *Forward that port related traffic (port forward)
    Here is the guide to how to port foward

    ohh ok i thought i would do something on the server itself but i can use the linksys i know how to do that but i figured because i disabled NAT and firewall on the router and dhcp the port forwarding does not matter on the linksys instead like my router/firewall was my sbs 2003...thanks for your help i understand better now...
