I need a simple step by step for setting up ipcop with terminal server. This is my setup.

Modem - - (red NIC) IPCOP Box (greenNIC) - -  (NIC 1) Terminal Server (NIC 2) - -  Workstations

If I have DHCP server setup on TS can I enable DHCP server on IPCOP Green since only the TS NIC 1 will access it? or will there still be a conflict?

What zone is NIC1 and NIC2 in?

Last time I setup IPCOP there were three zones Red(WAN), Green(LAN), Orange(DMZ), Wireless(dont remember the colour).  Which are yours?

Your Red should be your WAN interface(connected to your DSL or Cable modem or other device provided by your ISP)

Your Green should be connected to your LAN switch.

Your workstations and servers, should be connected to your LAN switch.

What you should then be doing is setting up a port forward rule from your Red interface(port 3389 TCP) to the IP of your terminal server on the green interface(port 3389 TCP)
