Allowing Remote Desktop Access from Macintosh Clients to Windows Clients
You can configure a Macintosh client to access the RDP remote service of a Windows client through a Commvault tunnel. The Macintosh client can act as a network proxy so that other Macintosh clients can access the Windows client remotely. This configuration is known as configuring third-party connections between two clients.
Before You Begin
To perform the configuration, follow the instructions in Configuring Third-Party Connections Between Client Computers.
During the configuration, you must provide the following details:
- Source client: The Macintosh client that will act as the network proxy.
- Source port: 3389 or any other port of your choice.
- Destination client: The Windows client that you want to access.
- Destination port: 3389
What to Do Next
Based on the type of TPPM setting that you selected during the configuration, perform a remote desktop connection to the Windows client as follows:
- If TPPM is set to None: From the source client, start a remote desktop connection using localhost:<SourcePortNumber> as the computer information.
- If TPPM is set to Any: From any of the Macintosh clients, start a remote desktop connection using <SourceClientIP>:<SourcePortNumber> as the computer information.
