Configuring Remote desktop port in Cisco router

How does one open a remote desktop port 3389 inside of
a Cisco 1720 series router? The commands seem so cryptic.
I hate this primitive interface and would rather use a
web browser to make these changes.

I am trying to allow external clients to access a particular
computer behind the router/firewall using remote desktop
application.

Thanks.

Re: Configuring Remote desktop port in Cisco route

I managed to open the port somehow. Now the external
or satellite offices can remote desktop into the main
server.

I am not sure if the changes I made to the router are
permanent, that is, if the router is reset (turned off
and back on) if the changes will remain.

Those commands are quite terse. Gave me a headache.

Now that my job is complete with getting the client
back on-line and recovering their data, I am resigning.
Too stressful. And they only want to pay me $500.

I will tell them to keep that money, give them all the
documentation of all the tasks I have done for them
(including setting up a wireless router that was
originally not configured and got their printers and
copiers on-line as network printers) and send in my
resignation.
(And I am not even certified)

ip nat inside source list {number>100} interface serial0 overload

ip nat inside source static udp/tcp {internal ip address} {port 3389} {public ip address} {port 3389} extendable

access-list {number>100} permit tcp any any eq 3389

I am not sure if that was simple or difficult to figure out.
I saw some examples the client had done previously in
the configuration list where assignments had been done
for other ip (internal and external) addresses. It gave
me a history of what happened within the company before
I came along.

Now that they are up and running (satellite offices
are connected), I will document stuff for them this week
and resign by Monday. I just remotely from my home
created more accounts for them on their server. I guess
I am their secretary now as well as their IT person.
They stressed me out. They do
not seem to appreciate IT people. Maybe I will consider
getting certifications of some type. My Master's degree
may not cut it now-a-days.

Thank you for the copy information. Now I know my job
is probably complete.
