How to Access Windows 2008 Terminal Server from outside the office?
Posted on 2008-10-25
Here is the scenario:
I have a Windows 2003 running as the DC on my small network. The server has two NIC cards in which one is connect to my ZOOM DSL modem/router and the other NIC is configured as the Local IP. The ZOOM DSL modem/router is NOT in bridge mode. The Windows 2003DC handles DHCP IP request for the Local Network in which I have about eight Windows XP workstations. Everything is working fine all computers can connect to the internet, access server resources, etc.
Now I purchased a second server running Windows 2008 Server. My plan is to make this server a Terminal Server. I have already setup the server to the local network and purchased the Terminal Server License Cal's. I can connect to the Windows 2008 Terminal Server from within the local network without any problem using RDC.
MY QUESTION IS HOW DO I ACCESS THE WINDOWS 2008 TERMINAL SERVER FROM OUTSIDE THE OFFICE?
Do I need to set the ZOOM DSL modem/Router in bridge mode and run the Internet Connection Sharing Wizard? What port forwarding do I need to do?
Thanks so much for you help.
