Switched Broadband provider..no firewall

By KINGBOB555 ·
We switched providers for our fractioned T1. The porblem we had is that our original provider shut our service down before we got service from our new provider. Now we are up and running again with our new Provider but we had to do all the setting up ourselves.we are a small company and do not have anyone that is too experienced in networking.to make a long story short we had to bypass our firewall on our own network in order for our computers to connect to the server.also, we have an outside office that needs to connect to the server through a VPN, but now that the firewall is no longer connected, that office cannot connect to the server. what do we have to do to get this outside client connected to the host? at least until we can get someone in here to set us up properly.

For an answer you must give me some information, you have not a firewall installed (not even the windows firewall)? And what kind of router are you using. If you need help in configuring and maintaining your network go to following link www.rbworks.com

I agree with the other guy. We need more information about the firewall you are using. Is it a software or hardware firewall? I would recommend at least having the windows firewall turned on, if it allows all of your software to work. But honestly it sounds like you will need someone on site to get this corrected properly.

Well for starters the Firewall issue is a bit hard to solve without more information.

As for your VPN you'll need to reestablish it because it would have been pointing through your previous Service Provider so it will need to be setup again for the new provider.

You need to hire somebody or you could get this really messed up. If you do deside to make changes I would defininly backup the configurations before hand to they can be restored. Having said that...

The only way you can do this is to configure the firewall with the new outside and NAT / PAT IP's. What firewall is this?
