  • Inbound connections are being blocked!!!

    Dear Sirs,
    I installed "Windows Server 2008,32-bit" latest, full release available on the net.
    The installation process went smooth, quick and succesfull.
    Step-by-step:
    1.I disabled the integrated Windows Firewall and then
    I installed "Kerio Mail Server" and "Kerio WinRoute Firewall"
    2. IN WORKGROUP MODE - The computers in our company were able to receive/send mail aswell as get access to the Internet from inside the office.
    3. Then, when I tried to access the Mail Server outside the office from the home pc. I wasn't able to startup the web-mail page and wasn't able to ping the server.
    The web-mail page should have loaded when I input the following in the web-browser address bar:
    http://external-IP/
    external-IP: 195.138.xx.xxx
    THIS IS WHEN THE PROBLEM STARTED
    The paged should have loaded a LOGIN PAGE as before. But now it doesn't reply at all. As if inbound connections are blocked.
    Then I finally managed to recieve/send mail from home using an "Outlook 2007" and "The Bat" mail clients downloading mail through pop3 and smtp protocols that are the same as the external-IP.
    POP3: 195.138.xx.xxx
    SMTP: 195.138.xx.xxx
    4. I installed and configured Active Directory correctly using the Wizard and also installed a (DNS server, currently haven't configured it yet).
    5. I left the default domain policy settings as they are by-default. I only created a different Password Policy Profile for creating Domain users without complexed passwords.
    The client PCs joined domain(Active Directory) and are able to work properly receiving/sending mail and using internet aswell in the domain.
    So please advise accordingly what could be the problem ?
    The problem occured right after I installed Kerio WinRoute Firewall and Mail Server before Installing Active Directory.
    Do you think it is the problem with the Kerio Firewall?
    or there are any group policy or other Windows Server 2008 settings that may be blocking the inbound connections ?
    REPEATING THE PROBLEM:
    1. Can't ping the server by it's external IP from home (outside office)
    2. Can't load the web-mail page as server doesn't even respond to the http query.

    Please provide qualified help.
    This is very urgent

    with best regards,

    Alexander Kozubay

      Microsoft seems to have released Server 2008 32bit and 64bit to SA customers. I was able to download the ISO images today from licensing.microsoft.com

        I personally downloaded it from the torrents web-site.
        removed
        1. MICROSOFT.WINDOWS.SERVER.2008.x86.RTM.VOLUME.RUSSI AN-WZTiSO(Russian version) RETAIL RELEASE
        2. MICROSOFT.WINDOWS.SERVER.2008.x86.RTM.VOLUME.ENGLI SH-WZTiSO(English version)
        Those are for 32-bit platforms!!!
        ALSO
        3. MICROSOFT.WINDOWS.SERVER.2008.x64.RTM.VOLUME.RUSSI AN-WZTiSO(Russian version)
        4. MICROSOFT.WINDOWS.SERVER.2008.x64.RTM.RETAIL.ENGLI SH-WZTiSO(English version)
        Those are for 64-bit platforms!
        and aswell
        5. MICROSOFT.WINDOWS.WEB.SERVER.2008.x86.VOLUME.ENGLI SH-MSDN(English version) for 32-bit version

        Those releases were officialy published on the TechNet website on MSDN for testing purposes, for the Microsoft Experts and IT-specialists.

        After first installation you get 60 day to activate the product.
        But officially Microsoft lets you prolong the activation 4 times.
        In other words you may prolong the validity of Windows Server 2008 for 240 days.
