I'm new to Openstack and I'm trying to set up a windows box that allows RDP. I created the image, and it works fine. I can console in and I set it up on the Windows side to allow RDP. I can RDP from one windows box within my project to another, so that tells me my setup is correct as far as the computer configuration goes.

I created a router betwen the public network and the network which hosts my windows boxes. I also fixed my security groups to allow incoming connections over ICMP and TCP port 3389.

I can ping the windows boxes from the outside, but I can't RDP to them. My understanding is that I need a floating IP, a route and a security group which allows it. Since I can ping, I assume that my floating IP and route are working fine. By that logic the culprit is the security group. Here's my security group rules:

Ingress IPv4 TCP 3389 (RDP) default

Egress IPv4 TCP 3389 (RDP) default

Ingress IPv4 ICMP 22 default

Thank you in advance if you can help

With the caveat that I am completely clueless when it comes to Windows remote access: It looks like you need a little more than that. See instructions.
