Hi, i have a problem with a connection to a server in the internal network, which has default gateway to isa server. Ping is working, but when i want to access this server via RDP, i get no answer. In the ISA Logging Section i see the following entries:
Client IP: Server IP with Default GW to ISA Destination Host IP: IP from my Workstation where i open the RDP Connection Destination Port: between 4000 and 4100 Protocol: Unidentified IP Traffic Action: Denied Connection
I have a Firewall Rule which allows all Protocols from "Internal" to "Internal". My Workstation, the Server with Default Gateway to Isa and the ISA Server are on the same Network Segment, which is configured in the internal Network.
A Firewall rule from Internal to Internal will never work. Here's why : If internal and internal are on the same subnet , then these 2 computers will talk to eachother directly , without intervention from ISA
If internal and internal are not on the same subnet then you have configured something terribly wrong in ISA server
So , if workstation and server are on same subnet , the workstation goes directly from the switch to the server.
Check : - the server , type this : netstat -a -n and look for listeners on port 3389 if you don't see any or they are on the wrong NIC , then you need to check the terminal server RDP settings
- on the workstation : ping the server , try a 'net use * \\server\c$ /user:admin password' if that works , there's definately connectivity between the 2. If only 1 of 2 works , try to find out if there's firewalling on the server ( protect my computer against attacks
- check for ANY firewall ( Norton Internet security on the workstation for example )
- check security algorithms on the server ( RDP / signing etc )
- erhm... check a lot more things if it doesn't work. It's hard to tell but your config is wrong
