RD and VPN port settings


M

Millybags

Hello all,

I've set my router firewall to accept port 1723 and 3389 for my three
machine LAN for RD and VPN. But, am I right in thinking that I ought to set
up the ports like so:

192.168.1.100 1723 3389
192.168.1.101 1724 3390
192.168.1.102 1725 3391

etc etc.

Thanks
Steve

You really don't need to even establish a VPN in order to use Remote Desktop
