  • Routing & Remote Access (RRAS)

    Dear Fellows,

    I face a problem in my windows 2003 server R2. Its simple workgroup mode. I have 2 network interface. one have public IP address & second is connect with my LAN.
    I also installed mDaemon 11 on it & configure it. after this all I install RRAS on this machine. I just select NAT/Basic firewall. after this installation, I test my email port 25 & 110 from outside of my network but those ports are not access. but when I try to open port 80 or RDP. its open & working. Kindly suggest me some solution regarding this issue.

    thanx.

    Any practical reason why you want to use the server for routing rather than a NATted router?

        Most routers (for small businesses) allow all clients to access the internet via the router, not via the server then the router. Basically, by putting the server in as a RRAS server, you are adding extra layers of complexity.

          Dear Ossian,

          I use this server as an email server. my LAN clients are not serve any internet service from this server. They are just use email services (using outlook express or MS Outlook) from this server. but some of my clients are work outside from office. they are using their laptop to send & receive emails. they are not able to access these services(pop/smtp). hope u understand my problem.

            As I said, the normal procedure is to use a hardware router (designed for the job) and forward the correct ports (25 for SMTP, 110 for POP3) to the internal IP address of the server

            Since your LAN clients do not access the internet via the server, you must have something like this in place already

                I agree with Tom.
                Buy a router and let that device handle it. The router will translate the traffic towards the server (for pop/smtp).
