I purchased a Mac Mini Server a while back and it's been a slow go getting it set up. One of the biggest hiccups is WAN access to the server, which leads me to believe it's a port forwarding issue.
I have a Motorola SBG6580 Modem (modem/wireless/router all-in-one). I thought that I had all of the ports forwarded appropriately, but whenever I do a scan all the ports are still blocked. In the port forwarding settings it gives me fields to add an external IP address and ports as well as internal IP address and ports. I have the internal IP address set to the server and I've tried both my WAN IP as well as all 0's.
I've turned the firewall off and I can connect to the server internally using the domain. I've checked with Comcast and they don't show these ports as blocked on their network. ipsec and pptp passthrough are enabled. Is there another setting that I need to consider?
Update: I spent some time chatting with Motorola to double check the setup of port forwarding and it looks like it's set up right. I might be returning this modem to Best Buy since I've ruled out all of the settings (or at least the ones I can think of).
