HELP!!!! Anyone successful in configuring RDP connections to a NAT'd guest VM running on Fusion 12
Hey Fusion Experts,
I have come across various articles, albeit most are pretty dated, around port forwarding 3389 via the NAT.CONF file to get RDP connection to work to a guest VM running on Fusion 12 and Big Sur (11.6). First, RDP is ENABLED on the guest VM... Seems the steps I found were pretty straight whereby I added the following line to the "incomingtcp" section of the NAT.CONF file: 3389 = 172.16.138.3:3389 (below is copied directly from my nat.conf file). Ahead of making and saving the conf file change, I shut down my guest VM and closed Fusion. Thereafter, I restarted Fusion and spun up the guest VM. Tried to connect via RDP and fails. Is there something I am missing? Maybe a firewall change or some other port forwarding step. Any step-by-step instructions would be much appreciated.
# Use these with care - anyone can enter into your VM through these...
# The format and example are as follows:
#<external port number> = <VM's IP address>:<VM's port number>
