winxp remote desktop via sshd linux box?


HI,

I have an linux firewall guarding my windows workgroup (winXP). Now I need to allow remote access
and i heard sshopen is easy way to enchance security of RDC. What i would like to know is if there is a way
using the existing linux box to act as sshd listener instead of installing windows version sshd on winxp then port forwarding to linux box?


thx in advance

chris

sounds like you jsut want to have a look at ssh tunneling in general if you run xp on the client, try an app like putty to ssh to the firewall and in the same config add a tunnel to point at the remote windows boxes rdp port. then just connect to localhost on whatever port you chose to tunnel from.

|remote XP | ========> | Linux Firewall with SSHD | ===> |WorkGrp XP |

(L3388 192.168.50.79:19800) (192.168.50.79) (R19800 localhost:3389)



But when i try localhost:3388 , I got 'client couldn't establish a connection to the remote computer'. I dont' want to install openssh on the workgrp XP .

ok , i found the solution from my question and thinking it might be helpful if anyone encounter the same problem like this.

remote xp ip =192.168.1.5
workgrp xp ip=192.168.50.222
firewall sshdserver ip = 222.55.55.55


1) workgrp computer need not to do anything.
2) merely configure putty on the remote xp .
--> in tunnel pages, make sure you have source 127.0.0.2:60001
--> destinatino , is 192.168.50.222:3389

3) connect to sshd in firewall server .
4) open MS remote desktop and type in 127.0.0.2:60001

OK, you will wonder why 127.0.0.2 ? Because default 127.0.0.1 won't work for some strange reason. I got this from an article:
http://www.bluestream.org/Networking/SSHTunnelRDP.htm

Hope this help !
