REMOTE DESKTOP CONNECTION with firewalls

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.
