    I need to setup a port forward in an SBS2003 standard server. Where do I go
    to accomplish this? The server is configured w/ 2 NICs (i.e. LAN and WAN)
    and I need to forward a port for the WAN side to access an LAN side
    IP...since this is standard edition, ISA is not installed.

    Thanks,
    m

    From 'Administrative Tools' go to 'Routing and Remote Access'. Find the
    'Basic Firewall' and there you apply port forwarding.

    Sorry I can' be more detailed but I'm in front of a server at the moment

  3. Hello Mike,

    Thank you for posting here, and thanks for Costas' inputs.

    According to your description, I understand that you want to forward a TCP
    or UDP port from SBS external NIC to internal client computer. If I have
    misunderstood the problem, please don't hesitate to let me know.

    Costas is correct, in standard SBS, we have RRAS to do the port forwarding.
    I suggest we try the following steps to achieve your goal:

    1) Run rrasmgmt.msc in SBS 2003

    2) Extend IP Routing and you should see the NAT/Basic Firewall node

    3) Highlight NAT/Basic Firewall and you will see SBS server external
    network interface on right (By default the interface name should be
    "Network Connection").

    4) Right-click Network Connection interface select Properties

    5) Click Services and Ports tab

    6) Click Add button

    7) Enter the description, select TCP or UDP, input port number in Incoming
    port box, input internal IP in Private address box, input port number in
    Outgoing port box.

    Note: You can only input one port number here.

    8) Click OK twice

    I hope these steps will give you some help.

    Thanks and have a nice day!

    Best regards,

    Terence Liu(MSFT)
