I've got a strange problem which I'm hoping one of you geniuses can help me with
I have a laptop which connects to the net, but only allowing access via port 8080. This isn't a problem with surfing as I can set up the IE proxy settings to use 8080 with the gateway I've been given.
Anyway... I want to connect to Win2003 Terminal Services on my server (remote desktop) so I can administer it when I'm on holiday should something go wrong.
Terminal Services accepts connections on port 3389, and I can't change this (I know its possible though, but I don't want to do this due to other problems). As I can only use port 8080 I'm unsure what to do.
Would forwarding ports via Routing and Remote Access allow me to do this? 8080>3389. Or would I have to set up some local SSH stuff? I don't know how to do either of those, or if that would work.
If you are using a linux OS on your laptop then I am sure you will find no difficulty connecting to your windows machine. All you need is the terminal services running also you can customize the port to which you are gonna connect. If you could just check the properties of the terminal services you will find the option.
If it is windowsXP then I think it automatically opens the terminal connection when you use the tool. But please make sure that you do have all the terminal and network oriented services running on the win2003 server.
Since you are able to browse the internet, why not install the Terminal Services or RDP Web Connection services on the server? This will allow you to connect and open the Terminal Services connection over HTTP.

It still uses port 3389 though doesn't it? I thought it was just an active X control?
