I think that I'm nearly there. I've bought, base-lined and created a domain on my server. I've purchased a static IP address and have the associated sub-net mask, DNS1, DNS2 etc...
I'm really not sure what to do to enable RDP from outside of my home network. I have a reasonably good Linksys router. I've been doing some reading up about it but:...
1. How would I set-up/configure port forwarding?
2. Would I configure my router with the static IP information provided and if so how would I point any incoming traffic to my domain controller?
3. What sort of Firewall do I need? Should I buy one or is it built into the router?
4. Any security considerations, I've looked into VPN's and I understand that they're more secure but I have to be able to connect to this environment and as RDP comes as standard I would prefer to utilize it in the first instance.
Any advice/links would be greatly appreciated.
