RDP through VPN setup

Posted on 2016-10-18

I have a client that is using the following setup:
1. establish VPN connection to service provider
2. start RDP session to the service provider (through the VPN)

However, during the VPN session, the client can't use local resources (print etc.)
I have tried to disable 'use default gateway on remote network' but than the RDP client can't establish the connection.

The client is using Windows 7, with generic MS VPN client and MS RDP client

is there a way to force the RDP session through the RDP without enabling the default gateway on remote network?

If you use the IP number of the RDP "server", the "default gateway" option DOESN'T need to be on.
Local resources not being available though, is probably a server restriction, not a VPN or RDP problem.
Ask the admin to give you permission for local resources (obviously, you didn't forget to check the boxes in the connection settings, right?)

not sure what you mean check the boxes.
when the 'use default gateway on remote network' is checked, I have no problem connecting the RDP

If I check the 'use default ....' off, I can't establish the RDP connection.

Are you saying the remote server is not allowing the split tunneling?

Just use the IP number first, then get back here with the result.

When you connect to the RDP, use IP number.
Report back if you can connect.

I am using IP address in the RDP client and I can't connect if the 'use default gateway....' on the VPN is checked off.

In that case, it's some strict configuration on the gateway's side (firewall and RDP restrictions probably).
Not being able to use local resources is a separate issue. Both needs to be fixed by the system admin in charge there.

If the local and remote subnets are the same, such as both site using 192.168.0.x you will experience this, when enabling and disabling remote default gateway..  For routing to take place each site must use a different subnet such as 192.168.0.x and 192.168.10.x.
