ISA SERVER WITH AZUREUS
Posted on 2007-12-05
I have an ISA Server 2006 Standard Server acting as a firewall for my network. My ISP has assigned me 8 IP addresses and one of those IP addresses I would like to direct to a server that is on my trusted network. I have successfully published an access rule that tests passing remote desktop to the server with success so I know the system can respond to an appropriately configured access rule. The only thing installed on this server is Azureus for bit torrents. I followed some instructions on Azureus Wiki to no avail. I configured my Azureus client to use port 5973 TCP and UDP, published the appropriate inbound access protocols and configured an access rule for outbound in accordance with the documentation as well however I have a problem running the NAT test. The instructions indicate the firewall client needs to be running on the system in the network. If this is the case I think I read somewhere here that the firewall client should not be installed on a server. If this is true will my problem vanish if I simply use a workstation running let's say Windows XP instead? My other option would be to open ALL ports both directions to this one system but I'm not sure how to configure opening ALL ports inbound. Opening outbound is no problem but I can't seem to figure out inbound. I know how to specifiy the listening on the one IP but I can't get ALL ports open.
Seems like a dumb request but I'll drop the max points since there really are two questions in here.
