Unable to find a solid solution anywhere on the web. Customer has SBS2008 and 4 workgroup computers. Before we came on site to assist, their server was connected to D-Link switch and D-Link wireless router and a Cyberlink switch was also in the mix. Previous consultant set up RDP for all users to get to Quickbooks on the SBS2008 Standard server. They then bought Cisco ASA 5505. All their systems were consistenly losing connectivity and the internet due to this set up. Then someone re-IPd the entire network and server (a network tech). Then they unplugged everything and set it up in the ASA. Everything stopped working at that point. At this point I'm not even sure how they RDP'd into the server without admin credentials, unless TS was set up with an eval. Now that doesn't work as well. We set up the ASA and bought a separate 2960 switch for their office and they have internal to the server and external connectivity (internet). But no one can RDP from any machine internally or externally now. We have set up VPN and can access. No ports that are needed are blocked on the ASA inbound and all ports are open outbound. I updated the RDP client on the XP workstations. I am suggesting they remove Quickbooks from this server because this is a DC as well as everything else that SBS puts in there. They don't need Exchange. Their mail is hosted offsite. They don't need half the things on this box. Everyone belongs to the Remote Users group. And the server is checked. I reran the Fix my Network and Connect to the internet. Not sure if changing the IP on the server without knowing what that entailed or if there were other settings that someone changed. Their network is now clean, but no RDP for admins to the server. I have set them up with LogMeIn for now from home. AND I've had to turn off the server's firewall so they can open QB from their internal workstations. I've added the QB 2011 ports to the server FW and no dice unless FW is off. I'm thinking a rebuild of the entire system or adding a Win2008 TS and putting QB on this. Any thoughts?
No announcement yet.
