Access remote desktop via VPN running on docker container

Hello All,

Docker for Desktop is running on my MAC PC

I have a docker container which has the VPN running with port 22 on container exposed to host PC as 40022, so I could SSH to the hosts on the VPN network using the container as jump host.

I also have the requirement to access the remote desktop running on the host over VPN network, for this I have also exposed both the ports 3389, 5901 on container as 40023 and 40024 respectively.

Now I tried to access a Windows PC using the Microsoft Remote Desktop application with Gateway set as localhost:40023 or 40024 but not possible.

However I can access the remote desktop when connected to VPN directly (without container as gateway) on my MAC PC

Please let us know if there is a way to achieve this ?

    As this is not with Azure VPN Gateway, but with Docker and Windows, your best bet is to follow up with those services.
