Hi,

I have a 2003 server setup as a DC with routing and remote access enabled, which I believe controls the firewall . I need to check if the firewall is blocking a specific internal port on the LAN. I cannot see any where to allow specific ports configuration within RRAS.

Note: in RRAS Server->IP Routing->NAT/Firewall the interface type: is set to Private interface to private interface. does this mean that the there is no firewall setup?


Your advice and expertise will be very appreciated.

What port you think is getting blocked?

Is it a multihomed DC?
MS recommends against such a setup (in case you have alternatives).

We are having issues with some GFI software and the issue looks to be down to port 1116 being blocked on the server.

I have inherited the 2003 setup which has a single network card and one IP address but RRAS is setup but I cannot see for what reason.

I use disabled RRAS as we do not use VPNs and we do not have 2 network cards. MS do not recommend RRAS to be setup on a single network card setup. This allowed me to activate the firewall and solve the issue
