I'm trying to connect to a Windows server from my Mac using RDC2.1 for Mac.
The problem is the server I need to connect to is guarded by the evil dragon - IP-based access control on a completely separate network.
I have an IP I can get in on, but it's at my office (i.e. a completely separate network).
Because that network isn't set up for VPN, I've set up a SOCKS proxy through an SSH tunnel (which is all working fine).
(SSH proxy) Me (on my Mac) ----------> Office Linux box ----> Windows server (home network) (office network) (other network)
From my Linux server in my office (the SSH server) I can telnet to port 3389 on the Windows server, no problem. But from my Mac I can't get so much as a squeak out of it. Any ideas?
