Changing SBS 2003 Premium RWW port on internet

Discussion in 'Windows Small Business Server' started by Karl Middleton, Jul 9, 2004.

  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. Hi Karl,

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

  4. 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/downl...4992-b5ad-b1e7b258de1c/SecuringSBSnetwork.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!
