Hi ya'll, got a toughie for yaz:
I am sitting at home trying to connect to a winxp machine inside my company network (in another city) but it doesn't work obviously because the traffic to port 3389 is stopped at our Linux Debian firewall. Anybody know how to configure the firewall to let traffic to 3389 through?
I tried this:
/home/me# iptables -A tcp_inbound -p TCP -s 0/0 --destination-port 3389 -j ACCEPT
then i restarted the linux machine and tried to connect but still get a "not able to connect"
I know that there is nothing wrong with the Remote Desktop setup because i can connect from another machine inside the company network.
Which logs on linux should i check to see what is happening?
How do i configure the firewall properly?
