We have just connected our server to a new BT broadband line (new static IP) through a Draytek Vigor 2820n modem/router.
The first thing after getting a live Internet connection was to open port 25 for our SMTP feed.
Our TAG name is changed to BT name server, MX/A records set and reverse DNS set up for the new IP address.
Under the NAT settings of the Vigor I have the option of [Port Redirection] or [Open Ports].
I chose [Open Ports] and enabled Open Ports for SMTP using TCP protocol Start = 25, End = 25 and the LocalComputer was the IP address of the server.
Our e-mail works on the LAN network and through the 5 Blackberries we have. Send and Receive = OK.
We can also connect to the Internet and browse from within the network (however this now seems to be bypassing the server and going directly through the router. I tried to browse from a computer that was not on the domani, just setup as on a workgroup and it connected to the Internet!)
I now want to enable the other services we use, specifically Outlook Web Access and Remote Web Workplace, but also VPN and Terminal Services.
So I have opened RDP port 443
Sharpoint opened port 444
RWW port 4125
VPN port 1723
Terminal Services port 3389
HTTP port 8080 (not sure of this one, but I read that I needed the HTTP port open which for the server is 8080)
All the above pointing at our server IP
when I type the external IP into a browser as I used to i.e.
I get a 404 Not Found!!! error
Could anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?
And point me in the right direction.
I can type the external IP address into a browser and get into the Vigor management page, and so make alterations from home and test as if I was one of the remote workers.
Thank you for your time in reading this.
