Cachepilot port forwarding
Right, so all somerset schools have been given a CachePilot (well, we got a Plus model) and as our ISA server is due for replacement, I am trying to configure it to take over.
So, can anyone tell me how I get the blooming thing to forward an RDP port?
Ie. I have remote desktop set up as a service, but there doesn't seem to be any way to get it to actually do the port forwarding - from the internet.
Any ideas? Or should I simply tell my boss that it is time we got our VPN set up instead?
EDIT: Also, it is running V5.1 of the software.

Im on version 4.
The only firewall settings afaik are under Security - firewall. If it doesnt look asthough you can do it, you probably cant.
Believe me, after 4 years of using cachepilot i can report it is the worst product i have ever used. If at all possible get rid. It certainly cant replace an ISA box, nor was it designed to.

The only functionality I want is web caching/proxying and forwarding one port. But if it can't manage it, i'll just have to get my boss to spend some cash.

Definitely time to hit VPN route... RDP over Port forward is possibly a mite insecure.
VPN doesn't *have* to cost money....

Its terrible at everything it does. Caching relies (or atleast used to rely) on an external DNS server, defeating half the point in webcaching.

User authentication is abit insecure to say the least.
MS download and update site is blocked even to admins - error is "Profile unknown, anonymous". Sounds obvious what that is but i can assure you i am authenticated properly.
You get lots of "temporary glitches"
I could go on but i dnt think edugeeks SQL db is large enough

ok, i think i'll take this opportunity to just use it for espresso caching then. it can sit somewhere buzzing away and that'll do. I'll figure something else out for our caching/proxying/vpn needs.

You're looking for something that does caching, proxy and VPN in one...
