GroupWise Web Access No Access


Last week our Linksys router/firewall failed. I replaced it with a D-link. Was able to copy most of the port forward settings from the old router but it failed before I could copy all settings. Since this replccement users on the outside cannot access GroupWise Web Access. Nothing has changed on the server. Internally the Novel server does DNS. Not sure if the new router should have the ISP DNS settings or the internal server IP.

Thanks in advance!

Does this work internally?

Have you tried going to https://serverip/ ?
Does it bring up Web Access?
Do specific users get blocked out?

Port 443 should be forwarded to the server IIRC.

Like you were doing with the Linksys, you need to port forward ports 80 and 443 from your public IP address to your internal IP address where WebAccess is running.  This is what I do with my Linksys DSL router and what I did with a Cisco PIX 501 prior.  My public IP address is static and was added to the Linksys config.  I then port forward 80 and 443 as well as 1677 for the GroupWise client between public and private.

Hope that helps...
