Access to remote host behind NAT address

 
Hi,

I new with Xmanager, and I have a problem to connect to remote host behind NAT.

So I try to connect:

connection to XDMCP --> NAT Adress --> Firewall (with forwadding 117 --> 117/IP_remote_host) --> Remote Host(Solaris 10 with XDMCP listen to 117).


I can connect directly to Solaris host but in the same network.

Thanks

Program Ver. : Xmanager 3.0
Connection Method : XDMCP connection

After the remote host acknowledges the XDMCP connection via UDP 177, it, then, needs to make a connection back to your PC via TCP port 6000 (every new connection is assigned to a new port starting from 6000 and up). So, in your case, your firewall is probably blocking incoming connections. To use XDMCP behind the firewall, it requires a bit tricky setup procedure. Here is an instruction:

Also, we recommend you to try using Secure XDMCP. It is much easier to setup and safer to use. The follow the link will show you how to setup a Secure XDMCP session:
