Connect to Terminal Server behind ISA Firewall with private IP
Posted on 2002-07-09
I have a problem connecting to a Windows 2000 Terminal Server in Admin mode. This server is behind an ISA 2000 firewall server. The server is configured with a static private IP address (i.e. 192.168.0.200).
On my LAN, I can connect fine because I’m on the same private IP address subnet. However, I cannot figure out how to connect to this terminal server over the Internet because of the private IP address problem.
Is there any way I can make this connection possible without resorting to assigning my Terminal server with a public IP? The port number 3389 is open on the ISA server for terminal services.
Just a thought; can I somehow map the terminal server’s private IP to a public IP address on the ISA and route any connection to this public IP to the terminal server? Can this be done with RAS routing feature?
I also tried pcAnywhere 10.5 and ran into the same problem.
Thanks for any tips.
