2003 Server (Terminal Server) behind a SBS 2003 Server

Discussion in 'Windows Small Business Server' started by David Maxwell, Mar 6, 2004.

  1. I have a dual-nic SBS 2003 server with a public IP on the
    one nic and a private IP on the other nic. I also have a
    2003 server on the network behind the SBS 2003 server.
    This second server will function as our Terminal Server.
    My question is how will public/Internet users access the
    Terminal Server. Normally I would port-map 3389 at the
    public interface of a router through to the private IP of
    the server. I understand port mapping quite well, but I
    don't know how to do it on a Windows server, nor do I know
    if this is the recommended way. I am guessing that I can
    bind a second public IP address to the public nic on the
    SBS 2003 server and then port map 3389 for that second IP
    address over to the 2003 Terminal Server's private IP.
    Having 2 public IP's should allow administrative RDP
    traffic to still route to the SBS server on the first IP,
    while the 2nd IP traffic is forwarded to the TS server.
    Is my concept correct? Is it the recommended way? How do
    I put it into effect? I think I know how to bind a second
    IP address to the NIC but the rest I need some guidance
    with. Sorry for the novel. THANKS in advance!

    If you have only one WAN IP address, you configure ISA or
    ICF to forward to your TS, then from a TS session you open
    another session to the LAN address of your SBServer.

    Alternatively, you can configure TS on your SBServer on a
    non-standard port.

    Actually, there's a menu option in RWW that allows you to
    connect to a server via terminal services.

    We tried this with a copy of Windows2k Server and set up
    Terminal Services in application mode and were able to
    connect from the RWW. I think the menu option is right
    below the "read my e-mail" choice.

    first you set up your terminal server.
    then you add the server to your SBS2K3
    and that should be all..

    the only problem we encountered is that the menu option
    would sometimes not be present on the RWW screen. We'd
    simply have to log off and log in several times and the
    menu option would eventually appear. why this happens, i
    don't know. it's annoying but at least we could
    eventually connect to our terminal server.
