Hi capja07,

If the VPN server is behind a router.
Standard port usage is 1723 for PPTP. You might also need to configure your router for PPTP Passthrough. Port usage for IPSec is 500, 50-51. These ports will have to be forwarded to the VPN server's local IP address

Have you configure Routing and Remote Access to create your VPN endpoint? or are you simply wanting to connect with the remote desktop client to the terminal server?
-If you have set up a PPTP ( standard) VPN server then as Jay_Jay70 said you need to forward port 1723 to the terminal server, and on the RV042, on the VPN pass-through page, enable PPTP pass-through.
-If you simply want to connect with remote desktop, just forward port 3389 to the terminal server
-However, if you wish to use  a VPN, which is more secure, why not use the Linksys Quick VPN client to establish a VPN connection with the RV042. This way no port forwarding is required, which is more secure, and the QuickVPN client uses IPSec, rather than PPTP which again is more secure. To do so go to the VPN \ VPN client access page and add a user name and password, and activate it, Then on the connecting PC install the QuickVPN client, connect to your public IP and use your user name and password. Once connected simply use remote desktop to connect to the terminal server's local IP. Quick VPN client is available from:

Wondering WMIF, if this one doesn't provide reasonable, and correct answers to capja07's question, based on information provided.  Both Jay_Jay70's recommendations regarding port forwarding, and my options for connections based on equipment and services, might warrant a point split ??
Thanks,
