pfSense Firewall Question

Hello Experts,

I originally asked this question on pfsense's own forum and I wasn't able to get a valid response. So here we go.

I have configured pfsense to allow a RDP connection to Windows Server with ip address 192.168.1.2. The server sits behind pfsense firewall with public address 65.X.X.X. I have configured pfsense as shown in the image, but I can't RDP to the server.

Your help will be greatly appreciated..

Cheers

So first question, if you put a workstation on the 192 LAN can you get to RDP on the server -- It's often blocked by default by the windows firewall on the server.

Second, are you sure your ISP is not blocking this port, many do these days along with SMTP (Port 25) and a few others.

Third do you really want to expose the windows server RDP to anyone on the Internet, that's what your rule does as written if it's not being blocked by the ISP.  This should really be an IPSec or OpenVPN Tunnel.

If you use telnet, as a test, does this work and connect to 3389 TCP ?

I've often preferred Freesco, which is supplied and fits on a floppy disk image, and does the same thing, uses less memory, simple text GUI.
