RDP through a ssh tunnel

floyd - Mon 04 May 2009 - network, linux, windows, security

How to access RDP if firewall is closed down, and access to server is restricted to a few ips:

ssh user@allowed.server.com -L 3389:windows.server.com:3389
# and in a different terminal:
rdesktop -uadministrator -pp455w0rd localhost

That's it! Secure encrypted rdesktop session :)
