Solved Change the default gateway of RDP on Server

October 11, 2011 at 17:42:25
Specs: Windows Server 2008
This is probably pretty easy. I rdp into our server 2008 via IP. This is a router on ip 0.1, this is forwarded to my server on IP 0.3. This server was setup with DHCP default gateway of 0.1. We added a new outside connection on IP 0.2. I was talked through the changes so that internal DHCP requests went to gateway IP 0.2 but RDP still used 0.1. I plan on getting rid of 0.1.

Where is the setting to change the RDP to use default gateway of 0.2?

From what you're saying the router is not a dual WAN router. You have 2 external IP addresses, now. Is that correct?

✔ Best Answer
rdp has nothing to do with the gateway 0.1. You are using the 0.1 wan ip which is what you have to stop doing.

RDP has nothing to do with the dhcp server.

Set forwarding in the 0.2 router to forward port 3389 to the rdp server
Use the wan ip of 0.2 not of 0.1

One of those Doh moments. The server was static set to 0.1 gateway. The gateway must match the IP of the router I am using for RDP forwarding. So to RDP on router 0.2, I must switch the gateway to 0.2. The DHCP can serve up any.
