How to set port forwarding to use terminal server client?
I'm using the terminal server client in Ubuntu to connect to a Windows machine in another location but I don't get it to work. I wonder what should be the port forwarding setting so I can connect.
So far I've managed to connect to a Windows machine on the same house, but what about in another locations?
Most likely you use RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol), as it works out of the box in Windows.
RDP uses TCP port 3389 by default; so port forwarding needs to be set up like this:
port 3389 on your router --> port 3389 on your Windows machine
For VNC you would need to do the same, but with port 5900.
