how to access a workstation from outside the network
Posted on 2008-06-17
I have a private network using Windows 2003 servers and a SonicWall firewall; I want to find out if there is a way for a user to access a specific WinXP machine from outside the network where he gets directly to the login prompt on that machine.
My idea is to use public IPs for each machine and RDC into the public IP; the firewall will direct traffic to the specific machine and process the RDC request.
My boss thinks there is a way to do this using VPN connection. He says by connecting through VPN it should land to the login prompt.
Can you help?
