Pass client IP when running software on terminal server

Last Modified: 2010-04-17
We currently connect to a program that handles our inventory through a internet connection that is managed by our software provider.  Each PC that connects to this program must have a authorized ip address. I would like to run this through our terminal server, but I must be able to pass the client ip along to the router that connects to their server.  Is this possible?

No, you can't do that. Can't you just have them authorize the address of your terminal server?


I could do that but I don't think each client would be able to use the program at the same time.  For example we use them for internet service too, we once added 8 computers to our network.  They used to charge a one time fee for each client that we would add even if they only needed internet. In an effort to avoid the charge, we setup a router with an authenticated IP as the wan IP and created a seperate network. That worked fine for internet access but eventually some of the users needed access to the program, well only one client could connect to the server at a time.  I think the same thing would happen using the terminal server.
