I need to get Terminal services over the Web to work. Initially I installed Terminal services (configured for Remote Admin) on a server. Then installed the TSWeb files to the server thus creating the TsWeb virtual directory. Do I need to enable any specific security that is not configured by the TsWeb exe?
I was able to get to a machine on the LAN from a sep machine on the LAN via web browser by entering the serverName/Tsweb into the Ie web address. When asked for the server name (within the TSWeb logon box) I entered the name of the system I want to control. This proved that it could work.
I then opened ports 3389 and 80 and routed them to the server. Tried to connect ti my client’s workstation via the internet and the WAN ip address followed by a “/tsweb.” This retunred an error message of
“The specified remote computer could not be found. Verify that you have
typed the correct computer name or IP address, and then try connecting
I figured maybe it was due to the fact I had TSWeb running on the same machine as SBS 2k. Split it onto a new system and lo and behold same issue. I tried to open ports 1234 (had IIS listen on the port) and 3389 and routed them to the new server, same result. I tried the user internal ip, the users full name Machine.domain.com. No good.
I now need major help and need it fast because my client is beginning to get upset.
