  • Port forwarding

    Hi,
    I would like to know if is it possible to do it:
    I have a server with NAT. My provider open all ports on this server with 1 PUBLIC IP. I don't have a Router, but I use two network adapters in order to do work internet on my network.
    I would like that if for example my ip address is 1.1.1.1 and my server internal address is 192.168.1.1 (with 192.168.1.* C class), if I use remote desktop connection from extranet and connect to 1.1.1.1 i would like to redirect to another pc in my network, with internal address 192.168.1.2, if for example i go to 1.1.1.1 from my browser (port 80) i use iis installed on another server with address 192.168.1.3, if I connect with rdp to 1.1.1.1:3391 I would like to redirect to pc 192.168.1.5, if i connect to ftp I would like to redirect to 192.168.1.6 (port 21).
    Is it possible? What do I do on my server with ip address 192.168.1.1?
    Thank you

    I don't think you can do this using the Windows firewall as that will simply control which ports are allowed into/out of the server, so you are restricted to just the one IP address - the IP address of your server.

    Your easiest option would seem to be to buy a router that will allow you to achieve port forwarding, and which will also allow you to specify a destination address inside your network.

    It also gives you an extra layer of defence and control before Internet traffic hits your network.

      Is it not possibile to use Access Remote Routing or netsh or windows hosts file?

        That's beyond my experience. I have always used a dedicated router to direct traffic to an appropriate server on our network. I only use RRAS for VPN connections. The Windows Hosts file is usually used to control address resolution from the host machine, it can not, as far as I am aware, control incoming traffic.

          you MIGHT be able to acheive with NPS.
          However, like Blood said - strongly recommend a router.

          You don't necessarily need a Cisco router.
          Dependent on your internet connection, you could use a draytek, or any number of other brands
