windows server 2003
Posted on 2008-10-09
ok i'm new to this site and new to networking in general. I have my A+ IT tech cert but I get really confused with networking.
I;m working on a clients server 2003 std r2 Dell server and trying to establish remote desktop/vpn connections from home for my clients. I've tried forwarding ports, although I'm not sure which ports to forward but I've been following advice from this site and many others.
I can connect by remote desktop to clients on the private/ LAN but when i try and connect through the internet I get a 404 page. There are two desktop clients also within the private network that I cannot connect to using remote desktop within the local LAN. I've configured all the computers and their firewalls the same but cannot connect to just these two. I can connect to other computers using remote desktop within the LAN using these two computers but just not these 2.
My biggest problem is which IP addresses do I use and which do I port forward to get this up and running. The Telus/router/DSL box has the firewall enabled and I've try to configure it with their online help but to no avail.
Any advice would be appreciated and if I\m missing details please let me know. Thank you kindly.
