PIX 506E Access List Problem

I have a server behind the firewall which, up until a couple of weeks ago, I was able to RDP into (it's a Windows server). Now suddenly I can't, though everything seems to be fine on the server side of things. I know the commands used are old here, but it was set up a while ago by someone else. Could someone confirm that this looks right to pass RDP (TCP port 3389) traffic through?


Re: PIX 506E Access List Problem

Although you have a conduit configured for RDP, a better approach is to use access lists. You can open port 3389 for RDP using an access list. Following link may help you

Re: PIX 506E Access List Problem

I'm far more familiar with access lists, myself, so I don't really know how these conduits work. But you're basically saying I could toss the conduit for RDP and just use an access list (which I've used for this before)? I just don't want to break anything. But if that's what you mean, then couldn't most of those conduits be done through access lists?

Hi, yes, please move away from conduit statements to ACL's.
