Port Forwarding - Two Routers and RDP

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Hello All,

 My goal is to segregate a separate domain and domain controller from the production in house network. I need to provide the separate domain with internet access. I also need to allow for RDP on a separate port (this has been configured on server, and firewall rule changed on server).

 On the HP I have setup another VLAN (2) and tagged it as participating in VLAN 2. I have also untagged the port in VLAN 1.

 IP Ranges in house;

 Production network: 192.168.1.X
 Gateway: (Router 1)

2nd Network RV042 Router 2: (external- gets IP from 1.x range) / (Internal)
 Separate DC:

The separate DC is not allowed to see any other PCs or servers on the network, which is why I am using a second router. It will be used as a hosted terminal server for a different business entity.

I am trying to pass RDP through on a different port (4000). I opened the port 4000 on R1, and pointed it to R2. I then opened the port on R2 and pointed it to the DC sitting on

For some reason, it still isn't passing through. When I use canyouseeme.org to test the port, it shows it as closed.

Thanks in advance for the help!
