Can't open a custom port

Microsoft Windows server 2003 for small...
October 27, 2009 at 23:13:19
Specs: Microsoft Windows 2003 SBS, 2.411 GHz / 767 MB
I am having problems opening a port on a windows 2003 SBS. It also runs a windows 2003 Standard server to run terminal services...

I need to open port 1527 for a piece of software to download a clean database from and FTP.

So I open port 1527 on the router and point it to the ip address of the server where the software will be doesn't work.

I can open ports for pcanywhere with no problem.

what could I be missing here? I am not using the sbs firewall as I only am configured with one nic. Everything else seems to work, browsing etc..

I took a laptop and connected it directly to the router setting the gateway and dns as the router and it worked, so the problem lies in the server some place but for the life of me can't figure out how.

Any and all help is appreciated.

If you will download something from an FTP server, on the server from a remote server, you don't have to forward any port to your server.

If it is possible, to download things via FTP on a Laptop, and the Laptop is connected to the router in the same way, there must be another problem on your server.

Thank you

Which software are you using for the FTP download on the server as well as on the laptop?
Both the same?

The FTP is not the issue so if I am not clear I apologize.

I have a software the requires access to port 1527 it uses that port to download information during the install. The software is called BCAL and I have contacted their support and have got nothing.

I assume that their ftp server is on that port.
