RDP to Internal Ip with ICS Port Forwarding

Hi there

I have the following set up:
Box A - Windows XP Pro, Cable connection to the internet with static IP and
software firewall, ICS enabled (my box)
Box B - Windows XP Pro, Networked to Box A with internal 192.168.x.x IP
address. (friends box)

I would like to have remote access to my machine, and likewise my friend
would like to have remote access to his machine.

I set up a port forwarding from 3390 to 3389 on the internal IP address and
use statis_ip:3390 in the RD client to connect, but this does not work. I am
getting an error message that the connection cannot be made, computer may be
too busy to accept connections.

I allowed a rule in my firewall (Norton Internet Secruity professional) to
allow traffic incoming and outgoing on por 3390, but still no joy. I even
changed the listening RDP port on Box B to 3390 and changed the port forward
on Box A to 3390>3390 but I am still getting the same error.

Can anyone suggest what else I can try?

Thanks in advance,
Adam

This article makes reference fo ICF. Do I need the windows firewall enabled
to get this to work? I only have ICS enabled to share the connection, I am
not using the Windows Firewall.

You need to modify your NIS Pro settings based on the settings I illustrated on that page. Check
with their support web pages for instructions on how to do that... I don't personally use NIS...

Any chance you could budget the purchase of a broadband router for your network. It makes it a lot
easier to setup, plus you have the added benefit of not having to have your PC powered on just so
your friend can access the internet. Also a broadband router's NAT firewall functionality adds
another level of security to your internet connection...
