Having problems with your Dell PowerEdge 2600 Server ?

Remote Desktop via VPN problem

\015 I have a server running Windows 2000 Terminal Server. The remote desktop works (inside the building) from client computer to the server by filling in the name or the IP address of the server. When I get home, I establish my VPN connection, then remote desktop doesn't work with either name or LAN IP address. I have the ports set up correctly in the router (1723 for VPN) and (3389 for RDT) to the server's IP address. My VPN connects at home using the Static IP Address. The only way to connect to the Server is to enter the same Static IP Address which isn't secure. Server is running Active Directory with DNS and Router is DHCP. My error message at home is "Can not find the computer, try again later".....Please Help, Thank You.\015

Answers :

If you opened port 3389 for TCP on your firewall you do not need VPN.
\015\012You do need to make sure that port 3389 is forwarded to the private IP of the server on the firewall or it won't know where to direct your connection.
\015\012
\015\012Once you are sure this is set just open RDP, enter the public IP of your firewall and connect. Do not make a VPN connection.
\015\012
\015\012Unless you specified on your firewalll to only allow conections from your home network you home IP has nothing to do with the connection.
\015\012
\015\012Now the point of using VPN is not having to open any of those ports. Ultimately, you do not have to open any ports because VPN, when properly configured will give your computer an address on the server's LAN and allow you to connect using its private IP.
\015\012
\015\012Clearly, this is way more complex that a post at FixYa.com. You should call your firewall vendor for high-level, interactive support and for the unique requirements of your specific firewall.

Make sure that the Active Directory setting for the User you are using to RDP with (LDAP FQN) has the remote access option turned on.

\015\012Also make sure that the PC's you want to access have static IP addresses. Not sure if that was mentioned.
