    Can anyone point me to a "how to" article on how to
    install and configure a terminal services client session
    through the internet (VPN) to SBS 2000?
    I can connect to the server by setting up a VPN
    connection and browse the public folders. I installed
    from the server the Terminal services client, but unable
    to connect either by specifying the internal or external
    ip address of the server or by using the \\(server_name)
    in the server field of the connect box. I can ping the
    internal and external addresses after connecting with the
    VPN session. Terminal services works with the lan, I
    have Admin authority, remote access is enabled for my
    user account. I can connect to the Exchange Web services
    without problems.
    My issue may be with the SBS Proxy (IIS) configeration??

  2. Is the IP range from the VPN client the same as the IP range on your SBS?
    Than you will need to change one of them, preferably the VPN client.

  3. Which computer are you trying to TS to? The SBS server?
    By this you mean you are able to TS into the same server you are trying to
    over VPN? This will tell us if TS is enabled for that server.

    You say you are able to connect to public folders on the SBS network, so I
    assume that your remote network subnet is different than your SBS network,
    since traffic is routing properly.

    Verify that TS is enabled and listening on that server.
    From the VPN client make sure you can telnet to port 3389 (and maybe verify
    that you can telnet to other ports like 25, 110).

    Trying to install TS client on home system and connect to
    SBS Server at Church for remote admin. I configured a
    VPN connection listing the External IP address. The
    internal SBS IP address is 192.168.16.XXX range Home is
    192.168.1.XXX range. Both are on subnet

    I connect ok to the SBS by initiating the VPN connection
    and can browse the all shared folders on the server.

  6. Are you able to TS to the SBS server from the LAN? This will tell us if TS
    is enabled or listening properly.
