    I find a little difficult to cofigure the Zeroshell Firewall. Can someone tell me a step by step to make VNC and Windows Remote Desktop working from outside?
    I have a Zeroshell machine with IP 192,168,1,160. At the moment I have an ADSL line connected to ETH00 with IP, and my internal network is on 192.168.1.x
    Let me say I am not a newtwork guru, so, here is my issue:
    In the company there is a Windows Server 2012 machine with IP I would like to access this server from outside, using Windows Remote Desktop (RDP port 3389).
    Same thing with VNC server that uses port 5901.
    I have already created a subdomain with DynDNS (my ADSL has a dynamic IP)
    Thanks in advance


    OK, so what you need is Network > Router > Virtual Servers, not Firewall.

    You need to add rules in there. The step by step requires more info, like what interface is connected to what. So for example for VNC:

    1. Set Input Interface to the ethernet port connected to the ADSL modem, or PPP link, depending on your configuration.
    2. Set IP Address to ANY.
    3. Set Protocol to TCP.
    4. Set Local Port to 5901
    5. Set Remote IP to
    6. Set Remote Port to 5901
