Changing SBS 2003 Premium RWW port on internet

Hello NG,

A customer has just called and advised that their RWW has suddenly stopped
working.

After some investigation turned out that their ADSL ISP has turned off port
80 access. Customer was furious but is locked in to the plan for another 12
months and does not want to incur the contract break costs. Always read the
fine print!

They have asked if I can assist. I think I can by moving the default port
off to something like 8080. This customer is running SBS2k3 Premium so I
will need to adjust ISA Server as well.

Can anyone point me at a procedure on what I have to do to achieve moving
the RWW to a non-blocked port on SBS2k3 Premium?

Many thanks
Karl from Oz

Hi Carl,

You don't actually need port 80 for RWW.

If you use http://fqdn.com/remote, you are redirected to https by an isapi
filter. So, if port 80 is not an option, then simply bypass the re-direction
by entering https://fqdn.com/remote.

Hi Karl,

That is funny, as port 80 is not being used for RWW. It is port 443 and
4125.

Hi Karl,

I think Marina and Les provided the correct information. The isapi filter appliced to your default website on sbs server will
redirect every http 80 port request to 443. If 80 port is disabled, you can directly input https://fqdn/remote to access your
RWW site and use https://fqdn/exchange to access OWA site.

For the port definition in SBS 2k3, please refer to the following article.

Securing Your Windows Small Business Server 2003 Network
http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...SBSnetwork.doc

The following port definition for your reference.

TCP port Definition

25 Email (SMTP)

80 required for HTTP requests for your site

443 required for HTTPS requests using SSL, which secures communications from your server and
a Web browser

444 Companyweb

4125 Remote Web Workplace

1723 (plus GRE Protocol 47) VPN

3389 Terminal Services

21 FTP


Thansk for your time and have a good day!
