see my SBS2003 from the internet via 2wire BT2700HGV

Hi,

I have just moved offices and I now have my server connected to a new router.
the new router is supplied by BT Business, and is made by 2wire. Its a 2wire BT2700HGV.

I cannot see my server OWA or remote access from outside of my offices.

The router automatically set up another machine as a DMZ machine and wont allow my server to be the DMZ because it is a static IP Address....

Any ideas how I can see my server remotely?

Here is list of what ports you need to forward on the firewall/router to the SBS server so it can be seen externally:

SBS bascially requires the following ports:

This trick works on most 2Wire to allow you to get to more settings.  Have you tried it?

Hi,

I have done the management thing, I also set up

192.168.16.1 - Router
192.168.16.2 - Server
192.168.16.20 - 49 Client Machines
192.168.16.50+ Printers

ok, and ports 80, 443, 444, 500, 3389 & 4125 point to 192.168.16.2

the only problem is the other machine that is set as DMZ (All - 192.168.16.25) and I cannot remove that setting....

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

The DMZ is currently overriding your port forwarding settings.

About the only thing you can do is get a router that can handle multiple external IP addresses, then assign one to the DMZ and the others to point to the router itself for port forwarding needs.

can you disable the DMZ system completely?

I don't have access to a BT2700HGV as I am not in the UK, but I did find this article:

Port Forwarding for the BT BT2700HGV
http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/BT/BT2700HGV/Echolink.htm

Perhaps there is a setting somewhere in the web interface to disable the DMZ environment?

I know it's messy but you could try giving the server an additional IP of 192.168.16.25.  And of course renew the lease of the device currently at .16.25

If Sticky IP won't let that happen, you could try setting the server to DHCP, obtain the DMZ, change back to the static IP the router gives it, then add an additional IP of .16.2 for the server.

If the above does not work, disconnect the rest of the network leaving only the server set to DHCP. Then in the management console http://192.168.16.1/mdc go to Troubleshooting > Resets and Clear the Local Network and try the above again.
