SSH <-Tunnel-> RDP / Using WRT54g DD-WRT v23 (SSHd)
Posted on 2006-04-21
Couple of questions:
What are the advantages of using SSH to connect to a remote desktop over the net using XP's RDP (Remote Desktop) via a SSH tunnel?
Connecting directly to the remote PC via RDP (Remote Desktop) ONLY ???
I understand RDP has encryption, so why would I need to also use SSH?
If I use SSH do I need to setup a port forward for RDP, or does SSH already handle this?
I am new to SSH, and I've played with Putty a little, but any and all information you can give me on Tunneling thru SSH to connect to a remote desktop via RDP will be much appreciated.
p.s. All machines are running WinXP Pro, and I am using WRT54g with dd-wrt v23 Firmware which comes with SSHd.
