Hi Guys,

I need your help.
I have a problem of connecting my office PC to remote PC. I am using here a Fortigate Firewall, while on the other area which is 10 miles away, is using Sonic Wall firewall.
I am using Windows XP - Remote Desktop Connection, but I can't connect.

Please I really need your help

Thanks in advance

Hi Krieg,

have you forwarded port 3389 on your router?

Cheers!

Hi Jay,

Actually, the network is fine from Area A to Area B (10 miles).
And aside from that, this is my first time to touch sonic wall and fortigate. Because, before transferred from my other job I used to work on NetScreen "Firewall", that's why I don't know what to do first.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.
