I know that in Servers 2003 such as SBS 2003, in order to use RDP, you had to open port 3389 on the router. I believe with port forwarding, the remote user could access the computer with the suffix 3389. If you wanted to access another computer with 3390, could you use the same static public static IP?
In the scenario of using port 3389, when the remote connection was made, did it go from the router to the client and skip the server?
In servers 2008 above, there is no longer a need to open port 3389 (a good thing), as the server now runs Remote Desktop Management and all requests including RWA go through there. I am not sure if it is now called Remote Desktop Server Services or RDSS.
My major question is if you still have 3389 open and port forwarding to the client computer would that take the remote user to the specific client so that it would not actually use the server and Remote Desktop Services?
PS If there are two many different questions, I would be more than happy to split them. It just seems as though they kind of go together. Thanks.
