RDP with Server 2008 from outside network
Posted on 2015-02-16
I have a requirement for users to access a Server 2008 from outside my network. The server is licensed for RDP and my users can access the server from computers within the network with no problem, but when trying to access the server from outside the network the server will not allow the connection.
It is not a firewall issue as the local firewall is turned off and I can RDP to a Server 2003 from outside the network and I can RDP from the Server 2003 to the Server 2008 if I accessed the Server 2003 from within the network, If I try to RDP directly to the Server 2008 from outside the network, or to the Server 2003 from outside the network I cannot then RDP to the Server 2008.
I feel like it must be a security policy issue, but I have no idea how to get around it.
