Services Required for RDP? Outside Access to Computer via RDP / Firewall config.
Posted on 2006-05-03
i need to set up access so that an employee can RDP from home to his computer at work.
i have set up port forwarding on a free port. i do not want to use the standard terminal services port because other employees use RDP to access our server.
i set up the services as TCP and UCP on the free port. are these the correct services for RDP? in my firewall/router, i have the option via a wizard to set up port forwarding for terminal services, but it does not allow me to configure terminal services on a port other than the standard one. so i first have to define the services and then do the port forwarding on those services i set up.
which services do i need for RDP?
