Chapter 24. Making Remote Network Connections > Setting Up Port Forwarding

Setting Up Port Forwarding

If your network uses a router, gateway, or other hardware firewall, you need to configure it to forward data sent to the port specified in step 1 to the Remote Desktop host computer. This is port forwarding, and the steps you follow depend on the device. Figure 24.9 shows the Port Forwarding screen of the router on my system. In this case, the firewall forwards data that comes in to port 1234 to the computer at the address 192.168.1.110, which is the Remote Desktop host. Consult your device documentation to learn how to set up port forwarding.

Figure 24.9. On a hardware firewall, forward the new port to the Remote Desktop host computer.
