Remote Desktop back to VPN client machine from network.
Posted on 2006-04-13
Is it possible to use Remote Desktop from a machine on a Windows 2003 domain (Windows 2003 Small Business Server) to take over another machine that is connected to the network via a VPN connection? In other words, I have users connecting to the network via a VPN and I would like to be able to 'tunnel back up' the connection to take their machine over for support. I also have a situation where a user would like to establish a VPN connection from Computer A to the SBS server and then do Remote Desktop out to Computer B which is also on a VPN connection to the SBS server. Finally, would it matter if I am using a Cisco router for the VPN endpoint instead of the SBS server?
I have searched the forums and have found many references to using Remote Desktop over VPN but it usually relates to the VPN client machine taking over a machine on the network with RD once the VPN is estabished. This is going the other way.
Thanks for the help and please ask any clarifying quesitons.
