Remote Desktop Connection setup on Windows 2008 Web Server and firewall ports
Posted on 2010-11-23
I want to setup my remote desktop connection to allow someone to call into my windows 2008 web server and look at my IIS7 and event logs and make sure everything is setup properly, etc.
I need to setup my firewall to allow them in:
1) how can I setup my firewall to allow them to specifically log into THIS machine and not the machine that is assigned to the firewall? I'm using Netgear Prosafe.
2) what ports should I setup for the services and what type?
The last time I did this, the user could only log into the IP address that was assigned to the firewall. Is there a way it can be setup so that they can log into the actual box needed?
3) How do I setup the Windows 2008 Web server to turn this feature on?
I need step by step instructions.
