Connecting to M$ Terminal Services using Rdesktop


Hey all,

I'm having some difficulty connecting to a remote windows machine using terminal services. I've installed rdesktop.

I however, have a linux router/firewall/server machine between me and the internet. I'm NATed and I'm wondering if there are any firewall rules i need to add/edit for me to gain access to the ternminal server.

I want to check on my end first before i report back that I am unable to connect to the remote server.

Thanx in advance for any help and/or suggestions.

tcp port 3389 needs to be open on your firewall/router to be able to connect.

Just to verify, I need to open this port so that i can connect to an outside machine? or to allow and outside machine to connect to me?
