Additional quick question on the PIX 501 and Windows 2003 Server

Posted on 2004-11-11

So, I have allowed my windows 2003 server port 80 and 3389 and https(443) through the PIX firewall, but  how exactly can I use port 3389?  I go to the server:, but nothing comes up.

So, how do I:

1.  setup remote desktop so that I can access port 3389 via https
2.  setup sftp using port 22

on the PIX 501?

    Start your remote desktop client (or terminal services client) and type the IP address in there. Good chance the client is already installed on your system, otherwise you can download it here:

    To use sftp on your Windows server you need 3rd party server like WinSSHD for example.
