Hi Amit,

Are you trying to do this externally (off site) if you are, you need to check ports 443 and 4125 are port forwarding to your SBS server. Also check that the certificate is valid.

Also, you may need to port forward port 444

Hey Danny,

Than you for your response.
As I have checked the routers port configuration there All the mentioned ports are open.
But I am not sure if the port type should be TCP as it is configured in my Router.

Could you please suggest if I need to change the Port Type (TCP or UDP or Both)?

I am waiting for your prompt response.

Thank you much,,,
Amit

Fyi...I have tried to Telnet the machine by machine.domain.com 4125 and machine.domain.com 444 but it is being failed.

It is succeeded on port 25.

Thanks,
Amit

Amit,

It sounds as if the ports aren't forwarding properly. The ports should forward TCP traffic so that looks good. Try a telnet on the IP address and see if that works. If you are remote it will be your external router or firewall address if your internal it will be the LAN address.  Double check to see if the port forwarding rule is applied successfully. You should be forwarding the ports to your SBS server LAN address.

That would suggest that the port forwarding rule isnt working correctly. Can you access companyweb via the internal network?

Is the URL you are browsing to for RWW the same as the certificate url?

You may need to re-import your certificate to the trusted root certification authorities folder. I think thats where the problem lies here rather than the port forward.

OK so ive done some digging around my end and found i had exactly the same problem at a customer of mine. You need to port forward port 444 on your router, firewall or ISA server (whatever your using) to the internal server address using a NAT rule. You log in to RWW and click the link, enter the credentials (domain\username and password) and that should be it. just make sure your certificate matches your url

hope this helps

To check if ports are open correctly use this tool

nice and easy. And you can see if it is working. I dont think telnet will work on those ports as it needs to support it. Will on port 25 as exchange uses/supports this, but havent seen this done with 444 or 4125.
