I have tried port forwarding on this with no luck on either standard
(3389) or non standard ports.  Do I have to have a VPN in order to use
Remote Desktop?

I have several of these units out in the field and working with similar
setups. Obviously I would always recommend using vpn or the GVPN to
securely connect, but it isnt a requirement. Are you trying to create
these rules step by step or using the wizard? Also, are you running the
standard or enhanced OS. I would just go to Firewall->Rule
Wizard->Next->Public Rule Wizard->Next->choose your service, ip, and
destination interface. That should be all that is necessary so long as
you dont have a more specific deny entry in the device.

Alan,

Thanks for the reply.  I have tried both the wizard and manually.  I am
avoiding the VPN as I don't want to pay for client licenses just to
accomplish this task.  I have tried connecting to both Terminal
Services and a custom service I created.  I know RD to this machine is
working as I can get to it from the LAN.   Basically, I went to
whatismyip.com and got the external IP address and am using that to try
and connect.  The rules are at the top of the list.
