remote desktop with routing and remote access

Discussion in 'Windows Networking' started by Marcus \(Cascom\), Jan 16, 2004.

  1. first the problem, then the configuration:
    I cannot remotely administer my client's new windows 2003
    standard edition server from across the internet. It
    works fine internally, even when addressing the external
    IP of the server. The server can ping me, I cannot ping
    the server. The server is running the DHCP service and
    Routing and Remote Access. It has two Nics, one internal
    static IP (192 subnet). The external Nic is directly
    connected to the ADSL modem (ISP assures me no traffic is
    being filtered), and obtaining its IP automatically. The
    remote desktop service is enabled, I noticed the windows
    firewall is not able to be enabled because Routing and
    Remote Access Server is running. I am assuming I need to
    configure RAS to allow external pings and rdp
    connections? Any help you can provide would be greatly
    appreciated. I saw already that I have to manually add
    ICMP or something to get the pings to get to the nic...
    dang wish I knew this before I drove back home 800 miles
    away. I figured if i could connect locally I was good to
    go. :p

  2. Probably you enabled the firewall when you configured Routing and Remote
    Access.

    Open the RRAS console, expand IP Routing and click on NAT/Basic Firewall.
    Right click on the Internet interface and select Properties. The firewall
    configuration is on the Services and Ports tab - there you can allow Remote
    Desktop.
