Need to open RDP port on a Cisco 1800 series router
Posted on 2006-10-29
I'm a bit new to routers and was wondering if anyone could give me some pointers for opening the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP - 3389) port on a Cisco 1800 series router.
I want to remote into a Windows 2003 R2 Server at 192.168.30.25. There is a static public IP Address on the front end of this router and I can ping that but the RDP port appears to be closed as no connections are made.
I know that I need to tell the router that traffic destined for (public address) - Port 3389 should be directed to 192.168.30.25 but I don't know how to do it.
I did find a browser based graphical user interface for configuring Cisco routers, should I try to use something like that? Any and all suggestions will be appreciated.
