Access Remote Desktop through Cisco VPN
Posted on 2009-12-23
Here is the deal. In our network, we are using a Cisco 2610-DC border router, which is then routed through a Cisco PIX 515E firewall which then goes on to the rest of our network. Before I began working here, the firewall and such was set up so that it allowed access via the Cisco VPN client.VPN has worked fine since then but, an issue has been raised currently that users need to be able to access remote desktop once they are connected via VPN. But, when trying to do so, users are receiving the message that they do not have Allow Log in through Terminal Services right. I went into AD and went to the user in question and went to their properties and under the Terminal Services Profile tab, and the only checkbox was to "Deny this user permissions to log on to any Terminal Server" which was not checked. I have added the users to the Remote Users group within Active Directory, but still no dice...I was not sure if this was a setting that needed to be adjusted with the firewall, or if it was a setting within Active Directory that needed to be fixed, so that is why this question is under both groups. I am still learning about VPN, so please be pretty conscious of that in your explanation but, any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
