ADSL router supporting rdp connections?


[link to this post]
 
I am looking for a router to replace our flakey TP-LINK. We are a small office of 4 people and we need both wifi and ethernet and the router must also be able to support rdp connectivity because we need to remotely access our work pcs.

Can anyone recommend me a good wifi ADSL router which suports rdp?

Many thanks

You should investigate software such as logmein installed on your pcs rather than contemplating allowing raw rdp sessions.

Any router that can forward ports successfully will work perfect with RDP.

RDP is highly secure nowadays smile In fact tbh, in comparison to other remote access software, it always has been.

Do I need to use a separate port for each rdp connection?

Yes, default port for RDP is 3389

So, when you go into Remote Desktop Connection Client, when you type in an IP address it automatically uses the default port 3389.

Luckily, you can change the port on the machines so you can have multiple machines using RDP on the same IP address, what you need to do is

a) Change the port number for RDP on each machine (google will tell you how, change to the registry). I would start with 3389 and go upwards from that amount.
b) set up the port forwarding on the router
c) when making the connection, append the correct port number that corresponds to the correct machine on the connection box

I assume you are OK with these instructions but if not then ask and I can explain in further detail.

logmein is secure but slower than rdp

Thanks for that Pipexer, very informative. When we get the new box we'll try it out.
