OfficeConnect Secure Router

OfficeConnect Secure Router

OfficeConnect Secure Router

I've got a OfficeConnect Secure Router (3CR860-95) that is behaving oddly.  There are no policies that allow any inbound traffic.  However, a port scan on the public interface reveals several ports are being forwarded to a private server.  The ports are active as well.  I can RDP to the public interface and it connects me to the private Windows server.  

Is there somewhere that is not obvious that these rules might exist?  I intend to replace the unit, but in the meantime, I need to secure it.

RE: OfficeConnect Secure Router

Even more puzzling is that if I disable RDP on the Windows server, and attempt to connect via RDP to the public IP, I end up with a connection to a random desktop.

RE: OfficeConnect Secure Router

Is it covered in the documentation for the router? I would think that would be the obvious place to check...


RE: OfficeConnect Secure Router

RTFM wasn't really what I was hoping for.  This is a very odd issue and I could not find an explanation in any of the usual places.  I'm looking for someone with experience with this particular device that might give me some off-the-beaten-path advice.

RE: OfficeConnect Secure Router

3Com seems to have a lot of very odd issues these days!

Did you check for any firmware updates and release notes. Sometimes the release notes can provide clues, even if for previous releases.

I don't know how popular their routers are, but good luck.
