Routing RDP traffic to Term Server behind SBS 2003
Posted on 2011-09-22
I have a client running SBS 2003 with two nics. SBS 2003 is acting as a router/gateway between the internal LAN (192.168.16.x) and the DMZ (192.168.1.x). I have a single Verizon FIOS static IP that is on the Actiontec router (joy!) with port forwarding to 192.168.1.2 (the SBS box).
I also have a Terminal Server (Win2k3) on the SBS 2003 domain with IP of 192.168.16.3, as well as a few dozen client machines with IPs of 192.168.16.100-254.
All users can currently access their desktop machines or the terminal server using RWW via IE browser.
I now have some users with Ipad that want to use an Ipad RDP client to access their desktop or terminal server. I currently have an Iphone/Ipad RDP client that I use to connect to the SBS server, but I don't know how to setup so that I can associate a "host" on the RDP client to point to the TS or the client desktops directly. Obviously the SBS does this routing successfully via RWW, but I don't believe Safari supports an RDP activeX control.
Another idea? How about having the Ipad users VPN into the SBS local LAN, and then RDP client to the TS or client desktop? Haven't tried this yet, but will if a better solution.
Thanks for your input!
