Need to RDP through a router I don't control
Hello everyone!
I have an office with a network that I have no control of. I can't access the router to make changes at all. The router does have a real IP address.

There is a server on this network that I need to access through remote desktop.

Normally I would just pass 1723 through the router and set up VPN. Without control of the router I am lost. I really don't want to use services like Logmein or Gotomypc, because these control the console.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
John

have you contacted your IT department? Generally we don't assist with work-related issues, as those are put there by IT professionals for a reason.

And welcome to TSG.

I am the IT department. A network security firm has control over the router/firewall. This was set up before I was involved and I am trying to avoid a conflict. If I have to, I will get another internet connection installed and do it that way, but I am trying to save the money.

Thanks,
John

chances are you are going to have to contact the network security firm. I'll ask the admins here, but I don't think we can assist.......give me a few to get an answer, and I'll get back here.

I've talked with the admins, and they agree that this is an issue that has to be taken up with the company that has access to the router, namely the network security firm.

Going to have to close this up, thanks for understanding.
