I am attempting to replace our old Netgear FVS318N with a ASUS RT-AC3200 Router/Wireless.
> We have a single Static IP-Address from our ISP (These are made up values):
=> Ip-Address: xx.xx.xx.70
=> Mask: 255.255.255.252
=> GW: xx.xx.xx.69
= ISP has supplied us with a CISCO IAD (Modem/Router) with only one Port (Port 0/0)
We were able to get our office LAN up with the ASUS RT-AC3200 by taking the one output from the IAD and inserting it into the WAN port of the ASUS.
> From there, and under the WAN settings section of the ASUS UI, I enter the ISP Static IP information with the two DNS ip-address that Birch provided.
> Internet access was restored and piece cover the land.
Now, I need to get RDP working - We have 6 managers who work in the field and who need to use Windows RDP to connect remotely to their office PCs.
> Using Windows RDP, they each have a uniqiue ip-address/port combination that they use: xx.xx.xx.70:xx204
> This was all working with the Netgear, and of course, getting the ASUS configured to do the same thing is becoming a challenge.
> Using the ASUS/WAN section of the Router's configuration web based tool, I configured the "Port Forwarding" for Port xx204 and pointed the forwarding to the manager's PC ip-address: 192.xxx.1.204.
> These actions were based on a document that ASUS Tech support sent me.
> Configuring the Netgear was far more complicated and I can not help but think that I am missing something with the ASUS.
It is not working...
Anyone have any experience with the ASUS RT-AC3200?
> ASUS tech support assisted, but since there is an ISP involved, there is not much they can do for me...
Inquiring minds would like to know...
Found a TubeVideo on this topic.
> I went back to the ASUS UI and created a new Port-Forwarding entry.
> Instead of the port xx204, I used Port-3389 and it worked.
> According to the video, I can only use that 3389 once to point one PC - Now the configuration of the Netgear is making sense.
> So the task at hand is to figure out how to set up "something" that will allow me to create 10 Port-Forwarding enteries and still be able to use the 3389/RDP feature.
