  • RDP Issue

    I am trying to connect to a Windows 2000 Server machine from a WinXP Pro machine. I am able to connect just fine over the LAN, but am unable to connect via the internet. I have forwarded TCP port 3389 in the router and still unable to connect from outside the network. Please help.

    Please review the router static NAT settings:

    From Any to IP x.x.x.x
    From Any port to TCP 3389 port.
    Best Regards,

      Re: RDP Issue

      Unfortunately the router does not have that much flexibility. It is built in to the DSL modem so port forwarding and triggering is about the extent. I had this working some time ago, but the tech came out due to a line issue and reset the modem loosing all the port forwarding and triggering. Any other suggestions?

          The router is built in to the DSL modem. The modem is a Westell Wirespeed Dual Connect.

            I have seen this before in combination DSL Modem/Router boxes for use with both Sprint and Bell South providers in Florida.

            Some of them have odd names for port forwarding - like calling it "pinholes" or setting it up under the NAT setup in a place you would never suspect it to be.

            Are you sure you have Port 3389 traffic forwarded from the router to the IP address of the Windows 2000 server? Have you checked to see if there is filtering turned on?

              The modem does not have the option for filtering. 3389 is forwarded to the correct computer. I setup PPTP the same way and it works great. It almost acts like something other than 3389 TCP needs to be forwarded as well. I have several other services forwarded to the same computer and they all work, its just RDP which works fine via LAN just not web.
