We recently have an appliance that sits on our network but needs access to
the internet. It is sitting on our network with an IP address of
192.168.xx.xx. I also have a webserver that is connected directly to an
external router/ADSL modem. All incoming port 80 traffic is pointed there.
I have the domain hosted records (MX and A) records pointing to the the
external IP address of the router. To get traffic to the appliance I have
done the following:
1. created a subdomain of subdomain.mysite.com.au to be directed to the
external WAN IP address. This has been done by my ISP.
Now, the appliance uses port 442. I have allowed traffic on that port
through to the external NIC of the SBS box. I have ran the Email and Internet
wizard to allow the port to be opened on the BSB firewall, (only have
standard...no ISA). I have also added the port to be re-directed to the
appliances IP address on the NAT / Firewall settings under Routing and Remote
With all this, I still can't see the appliance website from the web. Where
am I going wrong? Any help would be appreciated.
What happens when you ping (or nslookup) subdomain.mysite.com.au from an external computer? In other words did they setup the subdomain correctly and it resolves properly? The actual physical setup isn't clear. Is the SBS server hooked up to the same router as the web server? Does this router do NAT as well? Have you setup port forwarding for 442 on this router? It would help if the setup was a little clearer. From what you have posted it sounds like there is a NAT router with a web server and a SBS server attached on the LAN side of the router. The SBS server is a two NIC setup and the rest of the network is connected to the SBS server. If this is the case you would need to forward port 442 from the router to the SBS server then from the SBS server to the appliance.
