  3. Hi Mike,

    I am glad to hear from you in the SBS newsgroup.

    From what you described, I understand that you want to access to your SBS
    2003 computer remotely using VPN.

    Based on my research, you can run the CEICW and remote access wizard on the
    SBS 2003 to configure for the internet access and remote access. then run
    the VPN client connection from the client side. Please refer to the
    following KB for configure the internet access:

    825763 How to configure Internet access in Windows Small Business Server
    2003
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=825763

    As you also have a hardware router on the SBS 2003 domain and the client
    computer, you need to manually open the following port, please note that
    some of port might not be used for VPN, but it will impact other feature of
    the SBS 2003:

    47 and 1723 port needed to be open on the router when use VPN. Actually,
    since the router is configured in NAT mode, you need to manually configure
    the router to redirect the following incoming port requests to the internal
    SBS server, through it is not related with RWW but it will impact other
    features of SBS 2003:

    TCP 25 This port is used for incoming SMTP traffic. If this port
    is not enabled, you will be unable to receive external e-mails.
    TCP 110 This port is used for POP3 mail clients. This port should be
    opened when the POP3 service is enabled in the SBS 2003 server.
    TCP 443 SSL
    TCP 444 Companyweb SSL
    TCP 4125 Remote Web Workplace
    TCP 3389 Terminal services
    TCP 1723 PPTP VPN connection

    I appreciate your understand and taking the time to perform the tests, if
    you have any further issue, please do not hesitate to let me know. I am
    here waiting for your updates.

    already...I want to logon to my domain just using the routers vpn(no xp

  5. HI Mike,

    Thanks for updates.

    Based on my research, the external router's IP should be assigned by the
    ISP, it might be a public IP. If your ISP assign you a static IP, then you
    can access you SBS server via VPN using static IP. If you do not have a
    static IP, you need get a internet register FQDN name for your SBS. Make
    sure that the internal router IP of your SBS should be the same IP as the
    default gateway of local domain. Router IP

    I do not understand what is a static router, you mean a full time
    connections with SBS and remote PC?

    Hope the above information helpful, if you have any further issue, please
    let me know. I am here waiting for your updates.
