Windows Server 2003 / Domain and Remote Desktop to PCs on LAN
Posted on 2016-08-09
I've inherited a Windows Server 2003 LAN (Domain environment) with several PCs to help support. Am currently trying to understand how Remote Desktop works in the environment.
We've got a Comcast gateway with several dedicated ip addresses. Examining the Gateway settings, there's nothing set for port forwarding or DMZ, so I suspect that Windows Server 2003 is forwarding incoming Remote Desktop connections to PC's on the LAN?
One of the dedicated ip addresses is assigned to the WAN port of the Gateway. I am able to use rdp to remotely access (Remote Desktop connection over the internet) to the server using one of the other (i.e. "2nd") dedicated ip addresses. Appending a port # to the address connects me instead to a PC on the LAN.
ipconig /all on server shows 2 vmware adapters and a physical NIC
Where else can I look / diagnostics I can run to understand how Remote Desktop is configured for the LAN?
Can't figure out what interface the "2nd" ip address is bound to or where the port forwarding is configured for incoming Remote Desktop connections.
Appreciate help pointing me in the right direction. Thanks-
