Need multiple Remote Desktop Connection functionality
Posted on 2015-01-20
Our office currently has SBS2008, which we are losing. The Remote Web Workplace menu has a 'Connect to Computer' box which provides a list of Domain computer to which one can connect. We need a replacement for this functionality to let workers connect from outside the office.
We have a Linux host on the LAN acting as a firewall/router. I can accomplish what I want on a per-workstation basis using the following iptables command:
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i eth0 -p tcp --dport 3389 -j DNAT --to-destination 192.168.0.100:3389
This example routes any Remote Desktop Connection requests (port 3389) from eth0 (Internet connected interface) to the workstation at 192.168.0.100. That's all well and good, but I can only get to one workstation at a time. I would like something like the RWW's computer list where I could select from among workstations.
I'm going to check the VPN Topic for this question, but don't really know what I'm talking about in doing that.
How can I accomplish what I want?
