Looking for Terminal Services Connection Information for a firewall

Posted on 2008-11-08

Hello All,

I have got a Symantec Gateway Security 5440 Firewall and I cannot find the Terminal Services connection information anywhere.

Because they have been discontinued by symantec they no longer hold the information on their web site.

Anybody have any ideas what it is?

    Although I have not worked with Symantec Gateway Security 5440 Firewall but I do not understand your question. You wish to allow RDP to an internal machine behind the firewall or you wish to enable RDP itself to the firewall. In any case you would need to add a service to allow the TCP 3389 ports [default port for RDP or terminal services] and then configure the firewall to forward to an internal server or the firewall itself.

    Please provide details also update if have missed anything.

    Thank you.

    no I don't want to RDP Into it.

    I want to use either PuTTY or HyperTerminal.

    Any ideas on that the connection information is?

    Bits per second:115200
    Data Bits:8
    Parity: None
    Stop Bits:1
    Flow Control: None

    Thank you.
