Is there a router between your SBS and the modem/Internet? Normally port triggering is for games and such and is configured on the router rather than the server.

Do you really want port triggering? or allow access to SBS services such as remote web workplace, outlook web access, exchange SMTP services, and more?
If so, they too need port forwarding if a router is in place but also the SBS needs to be configured to allow access by running the CEICW (configure e-mail and internet connection wizard) located under server management | internet and e-mail | connect to the internet

I assume then that your SBS is configured with 2 network adapters and is the gateway for your network?
To the best of my knowledge there is no way to enable port triggering on a Windows server. It is possible, though not usually done, to enable port forwarding on the server. If you really need port triggering your best bet is to change the SBS to a single NIC configuration, add a router/firewall that supports port triggering (most do), and then make the router the gateway for the client machines.

Can you tell us the service you are trying to enable?

No way of monitoring and reporting I know of within Windows tools. You could use Ethereal/Wireshark to capture information, and then filter it by port, but that assumes you can configure your port triggering on SBS which I do not believe is possible. May be with ISA.
