IPSec VPN with the PIX 515e

I have now setup VPN on my PIX 515e and I am able to make connections and get my assigned IP address from the VPN DHCP pool.  The only issue I am finding is I am unable to Remote Desktop over port 3389 to an internal computer behind the PIX firewall.  Remote Desktop works if I am local, so there isn’t an issue with the PC I am trying to connect to, it has to be something on the PIX side.  I will have to do further research in order...

1Y0-A20 Citrix Exam Scheduled

I just scheduled my 1Y0-A20: Citrix XenApp 6.5 Administration exam for Monday, May 14, 2012.  I wanted to take it next week, however all the time slots were already filled up and this was the earliest I could take the exam.  I guess I’ll get an extra week of study in, which can only help I am sure.  More than likely I will run through an entire install again, as the more often I do these tasks the better I will be at them.   Once...
