Hello,

I am having trouble connecting to an xp's remote desktop service thru a cisco vpn.  I able to access the shared directories thru \\10.10.10.2 but I can't rdp...not even thru Ip address.  Can anyone help with this issue? i can ping the xp machine and the gateway.

thanks,

-rene

Is the firewall on the computer to which you are connecting configured to allow the incoming connection, or disabled?
Does remote desktop work properly when on the same LAN?

remote desktop works fine in the lan and from wan...the router's port has been forwarded to the pc but I would feel safer if i connected thru the vpn.  could the forwarded port be the problem?

Thanks enriquez_rene.
If using the VPN you shouldn't need to forward any ports for RDP, as a matter of fact, it being forwarded could cause problems. Is that what you were referring to?

>>"is there a way i could of done it even if the port was forwarded?"
I don't think so as it will redirect all traffic on that port. If you should need to do it for some reason, set it up on a different port, and change the default RDP listening port on the PC/server:
