I have been looking everywhere and still can't get an answer. I am sorry if this is a re-post somehow.
I Have a home network setup as follows:
OUTSIDE -> Linux Firewall/Gateway -> Windows Server
I want to be able to create an ssh connection to my firewall and then start a remote desktop session with my Windows Server.
There are no other firewalls between the Windows machine and the Firewall. RDP works otherwise on the LAN
Here is the command I have been using so far:
ssh -v -L 13389:<Windows Server LAN IP>:3389 username@externalIP
That connects fine and I am greeted with my Firewall command prompt.
When I go to start an RDP connection to localhost:13389 I get the following error:
debug1: channel 3: new [direct-tcpip] channel 3: open failed: connect failed: Connection refused debug1: channel 3: free: direct-tcpip: listening port 13389 for <WindowsIP> port 3389, connect from 127.0.0.1 port 65161, nchannels 4
I don't understand what the problem is, or what I am missing. Thank you all for your help!
