Allow Remote Desktop Connection using WAN GroupVPN

I have enabled the WAN GroupVPN and changed the secret key. I downloaded the Sonicwall Global VPN Client software. I created a user added it to the trusted users group and established the connection. So far so good. However when I try using RDP to connect to a computer, it doesn't work. RDP is enabled on the host computers. Ive tried disabling the firewall and it still does not work.

I am stuck. Not sure what to try next.

    Did you provide the user client access list to that host?

    Yes I tried using the local subnet and created a host object with the ip of the remote machine. Neither worked. I can ping but cannot connect using rdp.

    I put a rule to forward rdp port and can connect using public ip.
