We have a VPN setup but it involves installing software from our ISP on the remote machine and mapping the drives you want access to. I'm looking for a simple direct way of logging into a workstation. We are in the process of getting a terminal server set up at the first of the year but I need something now.  How do I set up my FortiGate 400A firewall so I can use remote desktop to access a workstation from home?

You must open one single TCP port on the firewall. It can be any port you want but it must send the requests to the internal IP of the machine you want to remote control on port TCP 3389.
So basically:
External IP, TCP XX ==> Internal IP, TCP 3389

Hope this helps.
