Using Remote Desktop through a Putty SSH tunnel

Get the latest version of putty (0.59b works).

Step 2.:
Run putty and setup an SSH connection and tunnel to the server.

In this example we have setup an ssh connection to YOUR_IP_ADDRESS_HERE and given
it the session name LR-S .

Finally set up a tunnel from port 3389 to your computer to port 3389 on Remote Desktop server. (as shown below)

Now you must save the session otherwise you'll need to do it all again
next time you make a connection.

Open the session and make a connection to the SSH server.

Step 3.:
Run the Remote Desktop viewer, or Microsoft Terminal Services Client, and make a connection to localhost:3389.

You should have a login prompt from the remote computer.

If you computer doesn't have Remote Desktop Viewer or Microsoft Terminal Services Client you can download the install from Microsoft.com (»www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/down···tdl.mspx)
