Got VPN going with Watchguard--how to Remote Desktop??
Posted on 2006-07-08
Hi all, here's my office setup: Watchguard X5 router, which connects several workstations to a Windows 2000 Server. The Watchguard connects to a Bellsouth DSL modem with a fixed IP address. To access from home, I managed to get a Mobile User VPN going, and can ping the router. Now the main goal is to be able to do a remote desktop so I can run our office program/s from home....but can't do; I'm not able to do a remote desktop on any of the office PCs.
I've searched all over the Internet including Watchguard's site, and can't find an answer. Watchguard says its to do with setting up WINS and DNS and such but they give no useful examples or info. But I know there's *got* to be a way!!!
It would be so grand to be able to do this. Since I have a static IP at the office, I found that I could do a direct remote desktop, as long as I configured the router to do so. However, I consider that to be a security issue so I decided not to keep that open.
Thanks very much.
