At my work I have LAN1 of three twice interconnected monitoring PCs on Windows 7. Each PC has two network cards. The three pairs of IP address are the following:

PC1: /
PC2: /
PC3: /

The "Default gateway" on PC1, 2 and 3 is empty. The subnet mask

Also I have a router (ZYXEL Keenetic Omni) and the patch cords (red).

What I need is to have the "Remote Desktop Connection" to PC3 from office LAN2. On LAN2 we have Window Server 2008 as and fixed IP addresses like ... 50, subnet mask


Can this be achieved and what settings will allow me to do this as just plugging the router in between does not do the thing?

Thanks for any advice!

  • You could use a VLAN to see terminals in LAN2. Or put one of the terminals in LAN2 as a gateway and set a SSH tunnel there, forwarding ports.

    The Blue device in the center of the picture with the antenna sticking out appears to be a wireless device. Is that an access point or a router? how is it hooked up? is there a WAN port and is it in use? From what I can see, you simply need to get port 3389 through this device. If it is a router then you need to setup port forwarding. If you are using it as a switch then you already have the access you need.

    OK, there is still a lot of things that are not clear. I will make some assumptions and hope things work out. If not, then I will need more details from you. Your IP address is your gateway is you have an omni router at and it is also connected to the 202.20.223.xxx network . If all of the above is true then this is how I would configure the forewording page: Description- RDP. Translate packets coming from- ANY. Translate address- Mask Protocol- 3389 etc... Translate to- Port 3389.

    On your computer dont connect to instead, connect to the router will pass you on to if everything is setup correctly. Make sure you have enabled remote access on the machine at, it must be set to allow your connection. Make sure you have a login and password for that machine. Good luck!

The alias does the magic. When I insert a router in the way of A1 line before PC3 the network 202.20.224.xx continues to work but in order to address the PC3 from the router I have to make PC3 the part of the router network - So I assign the second IP address to PC3:

alias added

after that it becomes visible, and I register the host in the router:

enter image description here Then I create the port forwarding rule to access PC3 from outside the router as

enter image description here

Thus I also preserve the internet connection from LAN2 ( to router area which is important.

The Keenetic support helped me out. Now I have to figure out how to gain access to the shared folders of the LAN2 from behind the router...
