Juniper Networks SSG-5 Port Forwarding (RDP)

Can someone please help me port forward RDP on my Juniper SSG-5-Serial. I am not familiar with the cmd line so can you direct me how to do it through the netscreen. I have tried everything I could find on this site with no success.

I found this link online as well I did all the steps exactly as outlined and it still does not work.
perhaps your netscreen has a private address (192.168, or or 172.16/32.x.x , then you also need to configure port forwarding on your internet router...

We'll need a bit more info to be able to help you....  can you post the config (relevant parts, i.e the vip and the policy ?)

Judging from the screenshots, there could be two possible problems here. The first one is your policy. You are allowing traffic from any to the real IP of your server. Refering to the KB-article I posted you should allow traffic to the VIP. Second possible problem is your interface setting. You seem to to get your external IP by DHCP over PPPoE. Are you sure, that the is in the same subnet and usable as your external IP bound to eth0/0? Also keep in mind, the VIP has to be a different IP than the one bound to the interface.
Hi Bush,

since you're running an ssg5, you should be able to set the vip as "same as interface" (or something like that"  so the

 doesn't really apply (that applies to the "bigger boxes" :)

keep us posted of the progress :)

Hi Bush, i took a look at the pictures and please change the following:

picture 3, rdp:
Change the transport protocol to tcp, and the source port range to 1-65535

picture 4, rule:
Change the destination address "any" to the VIP you have created.

picture 5 policy:
remove rule ID 2 (any any any).

that should do it, you might want to turn on logging on the policy id 3 so you can verify traffic is hitting that rule.

I managed to get it working with the help of Juniper Tech Support, it was surprisingly easy to setup an account with them and get free support, I am attaching a picture of the single change that was required to make it function.
Good, happy it's working now :)

Have a great weekend.
