RDP connection through PPTP



  • I am trying to connect to my home PC from outside my network using a PPTP VPN connection.  I am able to connect to my pfSense box using the VPN but can't get the remote desktop to connect.  Could someone explain to me how to set the NAT up for this?  Thanks

    If you are connecting to the PPTP server on pfSense, you would not need any NAT.

    Make sure the PPTP firewall rules (Firewall > Rules, PPTP tab) allow you to pass the RDP traffic, and also make sure that there isn't something local on the RDP target blocking the traffic (e.g. Windows Firewall)
