    Can anyone offer me any assistance setting up port forwarding in Small Business Server 2003? I thought I was going about this correctly but it doesn't seem to be working.

    I have 2 NICs in a SBS 2003 machine. One NIC is connected to the internet. The other NIC is connected to my LAN. All workstations on the LAN have internet access via the NAT functions in SBS 2003.

    I'm trying to setup one workstation to listen on port 5500 for remote UltraVNC requests. This is what I tried so far without much luck...

    Administrative Tools >
    Routing and Remote Access >
    ServerName >
    IP Routing > NAT/Basic Firewall >
    Right-Click on NIC-1 LAN >
    Properties >
    Services & Ports Tab >
    Add... >
    Enter Incoming Outgoing Port and IP of the workstation


    I have UltraVNC in listen mode (port 5500) but when I'm on another work station trying to make a connection I don't get any response from the viewing workstation or the server workstation.

    Is there anything I'm missing?

    Yes, a router to do all of this.

    I realize a router can do this, however like I stated in my post SBS 2003 is responsible for nat/dhcp. I'm wanting to know how to do this within SBS 2003.

    Port forwarding is for external to internal. If you cannot connect on your LAN, check the workstation's firewall settings.

    I'm setting up UltraVNC to offer remote assistance to workstations outside my SBS 2003 domain... all remote locations. So this would be external to internal, correct?

    I've also verified that the firewall is either disabled or that I've given permission to port 5500 and the UltraVNC program requesting the connection.

    Dumb question: Is the firewall on the listening workstation set to allow incoming connections on port 5500?

    Are the remote locations on a MAN or other WAN type set up, or are you accessing them via a public IP?
