Remote Access

Discussion in 'Windows Small Business Server' started by Henry Hickford, Mar 2, 2004.

  1. Before joining my clients to my SBS Domain the setup I was
    using was to put 2 network cards in a PC. One had a
    static public IP with no gateway information and the other
    was assigned a private IP from the DHCP server, I only
    have 2 clients needing this setup and I thought it would
    be the easiest way to solve RDP access for them. The
    public IP used the firewall and now after joining the
    domain I do not have an advanced tab on my XP machines,
    meaning no firewall.

    Now they are having problems connecting and also I feel a
    little uneasy with out a firewall up on the public NIC.

    What is the preferred way to solve this issue, most times
    they use dial up from an offshore oil rig, connecting to
    the Internet, then to the server and then to the client
    seems a little much for a modem connection. It is against
    company policy to have a modem connected to a server.

  2. This issue can be solved With Remote Web Workplace. Remote web workplace
    needs port 4125 open on the firewall. Here is a link to a webcast that
    should explain it for you.

    Briefly, with RWW you access the companyweb from the internet, then connect
    to computer(s) internally after logging on to the link for connecting to
    remote computers. If you use XP machines as the clients inside your
    network,the machines will automatically be added under the link for
    connecting to, on the web site. Before using this feature, you will want
    to ensure that you have all of your Microsoft updates complete and have
    enabled remote connectivity to the XP machines.
