    question on port-forwarding

    Hi folks

    Host Debian 5.0
    KVM - virtualizer
    Guest - Debian 5.04

    I need to set up port-forwarding to run

    $ rdesktop

    to connect the guest.

    On /etc/sysctl.conf already ucomment;

    and add following 2 lines on /etc/rc.local
    /sbin/iptables -P FORWARD ACCEPT
    /sbin/iptables --table nat -A POSTROUTING

    But I can't find /sbin/iptables the execute file. Please help. TIA

    Sounds uggly. I'm not familiar with Debian - but iptables should be installed all the time.

    apt-get install iptable??

    If not you could always do some magical ssh tunneling!

    ssh -v -L 3389: user@serverIP

    then you would issue rdesktop as follows: rdesktop

    Hi folks,

    Thanks for your advice.

    Problem solved. It was because I haven't installed RDP server, xrdp on the guest.
