Publish static routes remotely on to a domain member

Hi,
Two servers on the same subnet, FTMG is joined to the DC, the DC's gateway was pointed to a hardware firewall before the correct static routes are configured. now i can only access FMTG, ping the DC but unable to mstsc it.

Is there anyway that I can configure the routes on the DC without logging in to it?

if you can access the FTMG then you should be able to mstsc the DC from the FTMG.

If not then it is not a route issue

The gateway of the DC was pointed to FTMG's IP, after which i lost connectivity to it, nothing else was changed.

I understood this part, however since the FTMG and the DC are in the same subnet, and you are able to mstsc to the FTMG, you should be able to mstsc to the DC FROM the FTMG

so open mstsc to the FTMG and then FROM FTMG to the DC

then it can't be a default gateway issue, you don't need a DG to communicate with someone on your own subnet

On FTMG do you have a rule to allow it to communicate with internal clients ?
can you mstc from FTMG to any other server ?

solowzAuthor Commented:
Yes there is a rule allowing all traffic from Internal network to local host.
I tried to mstsc the FTMG itself and it did prompt me for credentials.

solowzAuthor Commented:
Yes!

AkhaterCommented:
You can ping and you can access file shares, so it is either that the RDP service on the DC is down or that the windows firewall turned on on the DC.

Try to open computer manager and connect to the dc can you ?

FTMG is Windows 2008 Std. and DC is Windows 2008 R2 Std.

AkhaterCommented:
why do you want to enable routing and remote access ?
you shld be looking for the remote desktop service

I am sorry then I am out of options, it should be the Windows Firewall that turned out or something like that
