Remote Web WorkPlace

Hi Experts,

I have a bit of a tricky one, I have had to use port 443 for a web based application however because of this we cannot access our RWW.

I have tried port forwarding i.e. https://remote.domain.com:123/remote however this only works when I use personal hot spot. If I am connected to a modem it doesn't seem to connect, just says nothing is available. Is there anyway I can get access to the RWW webpage on another port?

All I really need is file access to the server shares.

Look forward to hearing from you,.

Hi Philip,

We are using SBS2K11, and the setup you propose would require 2 modems and 2 phone lines - am I understanding this correctly?

Thanks so much for your feedback.

It could be possible if you have any way of connecting a second public ip to your SBS server, else SBS wont let you do this easily.(it needs 443 for SBS services like RWW)

Does the DSL provider deliver true static IPs? That is they are not providing an IP via DHCP reservation?

If the DSL provider is delivering true static IPs then the router would be configured with the second IP (called an alias IP in most edge devices we work with) without any further modifications.

If the DSL provider is delivering via DHCP reservation then a small 5 port switch would be connected to the DSL modem with two cables connected from the switch to the WAN ports on the edge device. The second port would be configured with the second IP and rules set up to deliver 443 to your Web server.

Hi Phillip,

I believe we only have a IP via DHCP with our ISP.

I believe that the only way to do this is having 2 phone lines coming in with an advanced firewall to route between the to.

A Cyberoam device should do this.
