Hi to all,
I have a question about port forwarding & VPN.
Just recently attempted to setup a VPN connection to my home PC over internet and what I notice is that port forwarding on router is not needed for other services to be accessed on a LAN PC that's behind router, say RDP to a home PC, once you are inside VPN
Say I want to RDP to my home PC on its WAN IP on port say 3389 without VPN (ignore for now that it could be a security issue) then I need to forward 3389 in router to the destination home PC on LAN.
However once I establish a VPN connection to the home PC, it works without port forwarding. All I needed to do was only forward the ports to establish VPN in the first place.
Is this how it’s supposed to be?
