Allowing RDP traffic to pass through firewall

Unanswered Question

i have a pix 501 that i have setup remote desktop on and i have checked the config and every thing appears to me to be correct but i still do not get a connection to the server from a public address. I also have VNC running on the public address of this firewall as well but the inside address are different for both protocals.

I have attached a copy of the config for anyone to look at.

Please help

The config seems OK.

Please check if there is any IP based access restriction configured on the Windows server running RDP.

Also check whether you are able to connect to the system locally from the LAN using RDp?

The Public IP doesn't match in the ACL and the NAT static statements,

access-list out2in permit tcp any host eq 3389

static (inside,outside) tcp 3389 3389 netmask 255.255.2

55.255 0 0
