Yes you can so long as you have the static configured for the RDC server. Please note that with version 7.0, if you have a routable IP address for the RDC server, you can turn off NAT with the "no nat-control" command which will not require you to configure static for the RDC. Bottom line is your RDC client needs to be able to reach to the RDC server. Based on what you are saying, it appears that you have private IP address of the RDC server, hence you would require static and an ACL applied on the outside interface to allow the traffic to the RDC server.

Hope this helps !

I can access from my outside network RDC to the internal network ok.

How ever from the same outside host I know can't access the PDM from the outside host.

I have created a ACL on the outside allowing outside access in to host host)tcp any to host tcp 3389 which seams ok.

Inside IP



inside any to outside 172.160.194(interface PAT)

Also have a static from inside inside host) to interface)

Why does this kill my PDM access from the outside host.

Thanks for any help in advance
