For outgoing requests try


where you have to replace x.x.x.x with your private ip block and
y.y.y.y with the ip of the external rdp server.

for incoming requests try

FW_FORWARD_MASQ=",x.x.x.x,tcp,3389" where x.x.x.x
is to replace with the ip of your internal rdp server.

CAUTION: This opens up a big security hole!!! It's a good
idea to restrict the incoming ip range to dedicated addresses.
Another good idea is to put the rdp server into a DMZ. To
access the internal server i would suggest to use a ssh tunnel
or a vpn via ipsec instead of "FW_FORWARD_MASQ"

Check /var/log/firewall if it still fails.
