What is the best way to configure SBS 2008 & TS for RDP behind router using port forwarding?
Posted on 2011-09-26
I will be setting up two servers for a client - the first one running SBS 2008 Premium and the second one using the additional Server 2008 license as a Terminal Server. The Terminal Server will be the main server that remote users will access using Remote Desktop. I will need to access the SBS server for admin purposes.
What is the best way to configure the above for RDP behind router using port forwarding? My initial thought was to leave default port 3389 on the TS server and change the listening port on the SBS server. However i'm not sure if changing the listening port on the SBS server will work or cause other problems. I want to leave the 3389 on the TS server so that remote users don't have to keep typing in a different port each time they RDP. I also prefer to access the SBS server directly instead of via the TS server as that will use up a TS license.
