I have SBS 2003 Server as my Domain controller & have a XP PC joined to the domain.I also have a public IP configured on my TP Link router.

When I RDP to the Public IP ,I end up going straight in the SBS server instead of the PC eventhough I have configured port forwarding on the TP LINK router to forward 3389 traffic to the XP PC's IP address.

Pls advise why this is happening

Does your TP router support PAT (port address translation). If so, I would setup a secondary port forward rule on port 3302 that PATs to 3389 on the inside and forwards to the IP of the workstation. You have to have static IP for the workstation or a DHCP reservation though to make sure it gets the same IP every time.

If your RDP session is going to the server, the port forwarding rule is setup incorrectly.

Or you have a Demilitarized Zone on the router and put the Server's IP in as the default...

Does your router have any logging capabilities per policy? WatchGuard firewalls/routers have logging capabilities that are an absolute gem. You would be able to see exactly what is happening with the traffic if you can get into the logs of the router.
If you turned on logging on the RDP policy, you would see whether it was being used or not when you attempt the RDP connection. Also, with general traffic logging, you would be able to see what policy is allowing the incoming port 3389 traffic.

Can you post the config (sanitized) of the router?
You have to have duplicate rules/routes setup for this port forwarding.
