XP Remote Desktop through 2621

I have a 2621 router running ios 12.2. It is configured and running great, all workstations can access the internet. My problem is that I am unable to connect to a workstation (192.168.1.3) on the inside. I am trying to connect to this workstation from outside the office. I have dug around the forums and tried a few things to get port 3389 from the WAN to "redirect" to a local machine (192.168.1.3) at port 3389. Incase my description isn't detailed enough here is a picture! :-)

INTERNET(public) ---> ROUTER --> WORKSTATION(private)

Also the WAN address is assigned via DHCP, it is connected to a cable modem and it only provides one public IP.

Here is the config I am running, I changed the security related entries. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Re: XP Remote Desktop through 2621

I don't think XP's remote desktop will work through a Port translatted NAT address. You might check with Microsoft support on this to be sure.

Re: XP Remote Desktop through 2621

Find out the port number and protocol, udp or tcp and put in a line like this

ip nat inside source static mmm x.x.x.x yyyy interface Ethernet0 aaaa

mmm = udp or tcp

x.x.x.x = the ip of the computer you want to connect to (inside private address)

yyyy = the port number (for the inside)

ethernet0 = the interface that is on the outside (this could be a serial port)

aaaa = the port on the outside (probally the same as the inside or yyyy)

Then you use your public ip address when connecting from outside the network, this statement will redirect the connection to the inside computer you specified.
