Remote administration of NT Server

By kelly ·
We were using Netmeeting to remotely administor a server. We removed the proxy server and are now using NAT from our router. Now we can no longer use Netmeeting's Host mode because the server no longer has a public IP address on it. Are there anyother ways to remotely admin this server throught the internet? Or is there a work around for using Netmeeting.

Next to netmeeting I use Famatech's radmin (current version 2.1) and one of my clients uses pc anywhere.

I suggest to take a look at Famatech first.

If you use NAT and thats the problem you cannot access the Server, no other sollution will be able to access the Server since it's hidden for the Internet.
For a workaround you can either use PAT or one to one NAT.
Or you can set up VPN which willgive you a Private IP and then connect using the private IP.

Remote administration of NT Server

by Joseph Moore In reply to Remote administration of ...

At my last job, I was using PCAnywhere, going through the Internet, through my NAT-enabled firewall. I had 1 public IP address that pointed to the external side of the firewall.
On the firewall, I pointed the PCAnywhere TCP and UDP ports to an internal IP address of a machine running PCAnywhere Gateway. The Gateway scanned the office subnet and would display all machines running PCAnwhere in Host mode.
I then would select the host I wanted.
On each of the hosts, I set up NTLM-level authentication (NT user name/password).

So, I suggest looking at the NAT setup on your router. If you can't do a 1-to-1 NAT assignment, can you at least point a couple ports to an internal IP?

Hope this helps.
