RV042G - prevent foreign IP addresses from accessing server via RDP
I am using Remote Desktop (RDP) in Windows 7 to connect to a server that is behind a Cisco RV042G router. I am the only one authorized to access the server, but it appears that others are trying to access the server via RDP. I want to prevent access to this server via RDP (port 3389) except for me. I know my IP address, so I want to know how to either:
1. set up a filter (?) so any IP address other than mine is blocked from access (or only my IP address is allowed access) - AND/OR -
2. change the port used for RDP from 3389 to some other port.
I know how to log into the router, but once there, I am not clear how to set this up. I would appreciate a detailed set of steps to do this. Thanks in advance.
RV042G - prevent foreign IP addresses from accessing server via
I'm confused, so I'll try to be more explicit. Let's say my office IP address is 126.96.36.199 and my workstation IP address is 192.168.1.190. My home IP address is 188.8.131.52 and my home workstation IP address is 192.168.0.100. I want to remote in from home to my office workstation, preferably using a non-standard port, say port 3393. Can you use these IP addresses and port to restate the solution? I tried to "translate" the above, but something did not work. Also, when I use RDP at my home, do what IP address do I specify, and do I need to append the port (My guess is 184.108.40.206:3393 - did I get that correct?) Again, thanks in advance for your response.
Re: RV042G - prevent foreign IP addresses from accessing server
Hi Harry, you need to first 'bypass' the state table otherwise attempts would be futile. Try to use this method exactly by first making a rule to deny everything then make a rule such as the second to fit your needs.
Per example would be
Source interface WAN
Source IP any
Destination IP any
Source interface WAN
Source IP - YOUR HOME WAN
Destination IP - YOUR SERVER
