Re: Cyberguard SG300

From the main configuration screen select Network Setup, and then click on the Connections Tab. In the tabline below that click on Aliases.

At this point you input the Alias IP address and the netmask and add it, selecting port 25. The firewall now knows that it is to forward all traffic on port 25 to the computer that has the IP address you put in.

You should be aware that doing the above opens a direct access point into your network! Port 25 is the port used for SMTP (Sendmail) and it is the most vulnerable and most hacked service on the Internet! You should seriously consider not doing this.

A better option would be to goto the DMZ tab and configure a DMZ net on your firewall - you will need to obtain a second routable IP address from your ISP to do this though. By creating the DMZ and then routing port 25 to a machine inside the DMZ you isolate the machine running SMTP from all of the other machines inside your protected network and so make a compromise much less likely.

All of the systems inside your protected network will still have demand access to the machine in our DMZ, but the machine in your DMZ would be unable to initialize access to the protected network, which is a much safer setup.

How to connect my MSSQL server through VPN by using PPTP

192.168.1.X is a local ip address ,, i trust that thhe vpn is in seperate places and is done with the wan ip over an internet connection?????

OK maybe the problem isnt on your side but the main office building,, when connecting , have someone looked for repeated attemps to connect by observing the fire wall,, if it appears to be blocked byu the firewall simply diasable any and try it out.. If it works then all you need to do is set the firewall correctly..

I was reading the ip address in your original post and those are local address,s are you certin the VPN is correct ???? did you use the correct STATIC IP ADDRESS ASSIGNED BY YOUR ISP??

I can get a computer on the LAN but not the WAN. All the other computers work fine but I just got a new one and am having this problem.

The WAN (Wide Area Network) port is used for access to the internet through the use of a DSL or Cable modem.

You can't connect a pc to the WAN port it must be connected to one of the LAN ports.

Cable modem connection keeps repeating checking and then down over and over, tried a different router works fine, tried a different modem same issue

I had a similar problem a while back when I bought a new cable modem. I didn't realise that my cable provider needed to have the serial number of my cable modem configured on their system.

I ended up calling them to ask them about the problem.

There is no way I could have solved it without calling them.

I think it is to do with stopping unauthorised users from connecting to the cable.

I remember they wanted my name, age and grandma's inside leg measurement before they would help me.

So if you have nothing to hide just give them a ring and make them help you. This is what you pay them for after all.

Blocking email

The ISP provider changed our IP address when we reset the modem.(even though they swear it was a fixed IP) The mailguard delivery address is fixed so the redirected mail from mailgaurd no longer had a valid address for delivery.
You can fix this by correcting the mailguard delivery IP address (phone them in business hours) or by providing Mailguard with a name address instead of an IP address .

Simple but frustrating until you think of checking to see if the IP addresses of your server and mailguard match
