My server 192.168.0.5 is setup for rdp, so I can access from outside by launching rdp and type in my External static ip. I tried to setup a workstation which is 192.168.0.3 and tried to assign port 6666, so when i launch rdp, i can type in external static ip:6666
If possible, please show me step by step instruction. Thank you for your time!

1. Change the RDP port http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306759

2. Create a rule on the Windows Firewall (or turn it off) for that port.


If you are using the standard OS you should be able to create a firewall rule and be good to go. If you are using the enhanced OS it is more complicated.

Are you able to RDP to it locally?

run the public server wizard and during it, create a new TCP port 6666.

You want to do port translation, that can only be done with SonicOS Enhanced, do you have Enhanced?
If so it can be done with NAT policies.

You can run the public server wizard as digitap stated, but you have to alter auto-created policies and firewall rules.
You have to look at the 'original' and 'translated' services.

you have to do something manual.  run the wizard and after change ingress and egress rules for the translated service to the port you want.

when the wizard runs, it created an ingress (WAN > LAN), egress (LAN > WAN) and a loopback NAT policy.

the policies should look like this.

ingress policy:
original service: 6666
translated server: 3389

egress policy:
original service: 3389
translated service: 6666

In the world of WAN, QoS is a pretty important topic for most, if not all, networks. Some WAN technologies have QoS mechanisms built in, but others, such as some L2 WAN's, don't have QoS control in the provider cloud.
Quality of Service (QoS) options are nearly endless when it comes to networks today. This article is merely one example of how it can be handled in a hub-n-spoke design using a 3-tier configuration.
