Right now I have 2 branches in Asia; one is in Malaysia and another in Vietnam.
Unfortunately both are communicating using port 6901-6999 and port 1433. Because of the long distance between the two I am afraid there will be communication problems so I'm using a VPN to avoid using port forwarding at the router. Can the VPN avoid or pass through the router? Both computer are in same network.
is there a way to work around this, without opening my port 80, as i believe it is not very secure to have it open. However, my mobile staff is located in places where only 80 and 443 is allowed. Am operating on windows server 2008.
I have a Windows server running IIS. I wish to run a piece of software that hosts a web interface on a non-standard HTTP port (let's say, port 9999). I have static DNS entries on my router for two FQDNs, both of which direct to the Windows server.
I have a Java application server (GlassFish, indeed, but the problem is the same for any other application server, I guess), running on port 8080. And I have IIS 7.5 listening on port 80 as by default configuration.

I am setting up a Windows Server 2008 R2 lab environment in VMWare workstation and attempting where possible to use Windows Server 2008 R2 to implement machines that serve specific roles within that environment. Using the "Network Policy and Access Services" role I have been able to setup a machine that can server as a NAT router. The issue is that any and all connections are allowed outbound.
I've got two ethernet ports. One is connected to a router which is connected to the internet. This portion of the network is fine. The router runs DHCP on the 192.168.1.x subnet, and provides a Company1 WiFi for guests, which does not have access to servers etc.

Hi running all latest MS updates - as a result of one of the updates From month of feb patch Tuesday I now find that my .net application which hosts a port on 8081 for HTTP remote access is now blocked.
