  • Windows 2000 Server problems, won't broadcast beyond my router

    I've tested my my router and have port fowarding set up correctly, I know i have some problem set up with my Windows 2000 server wrong

    When I connect to it outside of the router, I can't get in, but when I connect within the network, no problem. Any suggestions on a setting they might be wrong

    69.134.148.31 is the ip address.

    Also my internet provider blocks no ports

    Well i have to agree that DNS is not critical part for a webserver to test access to it.
    Although DNS makes live easier it's not required.
    So configuring DNS is quite useless to solve this problem if it's an access problem.

    @TS: Do you see any hits in the logging of the webserver?

    RDC portfowarding has been set up correctly

    DNS is not a critical part to a webserver, all it does it let people type in www.yahoo.com instad of 45.455.455.43, that's it. That's what the document you keep posting says too. Nothing more.

    You have a IP, you have a website that you want to host how does dns not play a part in that? - how will other DNS servers reach you if you dont have dns setup for them to query you? unless you host with somebody else.
    http://www.comptechdoc.org/os/window.../win2kdns.html
    as far as RDC goes - did you setup the server IP for DMZ and test?
    In the picture you show RDC 3389 setup to forward but you dont have it enabled - have you enabled it (if you choose not to test with dmz).
    Have you setup a user account for remote access?

    If I recall correctyl DNS is only Domain Name Service, meaning it directs www.yourwebsite.com to your IP, it won't fix the server.

    Configure DNS on the webserver . . . Unless you plan on having someone host your domain.

    I understand, but I have to get the webserver working first before I set up a DNS server.

    To host your website you are going to have to configure DNS for the outside world to translate www.yourwebsite.com to your global IP. Once you are able to ping your server by name and get it resolved to your IP from the outside world you will have to setup your site in IIS / APP that has extension capability (like vertigo) (for PHP/ASP/ect) and RDC should start working.

    You will also need to register your domain for it to work (www.godaddy.com) and create NS servers, ect. Instead of port forwarding why not just set the server as DMZ in the router so it forwards everything to it until you get everything working - then tweak your router afterwards.

    I do have terminal services on as I can RDC in the network, there is no firewall on 2000 and I already fixed my 3389 port, also I'm trying to host a website.

    Start>Control Panel>Windows Firewall (might only be on server 2003) otherwise it will be
    Start>Control Panel>Network Connections>LAN>right click to properties - it should be in that vincinity. (could be wrong)

    Have you configured DNS so users from the outside world can see your server?
    also
    Forward TCP/UDP for 80
    and RDC runs over 3389 not 2389 (note that for RDC to work you will need your server to have terminal services started and an associated user to login with)

    What it is that you are trying to accomplish? host website/ftp?

    Someone said it might be the built in firewall in windows 2000, how do I turn it off?
