NAT Configuration to access Remote Desktop

L2 Linker

I configured a NAT rule but it didn't work. May be I doing something wrong ?

Can you help us about this topic ?

Use a product designed to do this that can open via a proxy service.  Something like teamview or a similar solution that includes some kind of authentication/authorization.  This avoids all the NAT goofyness and security implications you are getting yourself into as well.
