Hi everyone, i have ISA installed on my network. The ISA has also client VPN set up. i can RDP inside the private network no problem. However, when i am outside I cannot RDP to any of my machines. I connect first through VPN which works no problem. Then i open RDP window and type in my server name or even i tried IP address. It does not work. I opened a port of my router for RDP 3389 and forwarded that port to the external NIC on my ISA. I also set up a rule in ISA to allow port 3389 but still it does not work. Can anyone shed some light please?

Hi THis is what I got

Success: I can see your service on xx.xx.xxx.xx on port (3389)
Your ISP is not blocking port 3389

you should probably just connect without vpn to the external ip of your router or you should use internal ip's when connected trough the vpn. Also make sure you opened the tcp port, not the udp

How have you allowed the rule on the outside of ISA/
You cannot use an ordinary rule, you must use the 'publish a server' option and enter in a server/workstation IP address on the inside LAN. Listen on the external Interface.

if you are trying to connect rdp to the ISA itself then let me know; there are additional steps requied to connect to the ISA local host.
