External and internal ports swapping
I'm trying to forward port 3390 externally to 3389 internally however as soon as I click save it swaps them and saves it as 3389 to 3390.
Can you post a screenshot of the screen where you are entering those numbers? Something tells me you aren't putting the numbers in the correct fields on the page.
I am guessing I'm doing something wrong.
Ive tried other\other for the ports and TCP and TCP\UDP
I have also tried other ports to RDP with the same results.
First image is what I'm putting in, 2nd and 3rd are what I'm getting back
Can promise you this falls into the user says they did X, when they really did Y category ;)
Sure hope your locking down the source IP of this to your known sources as well.. Its just plain incompetent to open up rdp to the public internet.
You are using the wrong fields. What you are telling it to do is forward ports 3389-3390 on the outside to the inside, a port range.
What you want is to set the Destination port range on the port forward (Firewall > NAT) to 3390 and the Redirect target port to 3389.
[Insert obligatory warning about opening up direct RDP to the Internet, use a VPN instead]
it is this simple
If your going to do such a crazy thing as opening up rdp, vs vpn into your network then you for sure should limit who can talk to who you actually want to use this
face palm That actually makes more sense
Also the any source was for testing from 4G, that’s a mistake you only make once...
I use VPN for most things except at work, it breaks to many things when I leave the work laptop at home
But thank you for the assistance :)
