The remote desktop connection failed when I moved windows server 2003 to the dmz (cisco pix).  It work fine if it stay inside LAN.  I have try to put difference computer (winxp) at the dmz and I was able to do remote desktop connected.  I also try to turn off the windows firewall of the server but no help.

Verify your security levels on your PIX...Make sure your internal has a higher level than DMZ.

Also, check your outbound access-list on PIX.  Verify that it is allowing RDP port.

Also, check configuration of RDP, verify it is restricting clients based on IP.

I do some quick test, put a difference computer (winxp) with the same ip configuration at the dmz and the RDP worked.

Where do I findout about the restriction clients base on IP?
