Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) using an SSL VPN

Returning to the Lightboard, Peter Silva (back on DevCentral team!) explains why its a bad idea to expose RDP to the internet and how using a SSL VPN like BIG-IP APM is a much safer and better idea.

  1. This pretty old video, but my question is which computer's resources are being used during RDP? So i can use my old Dell E6410 and RDP to my HP Z2? Which resources will be used?

  2. 1) create a strong password for your machine 2) setup password lockout after tries 3) adjust firewall rules in windows advanced settings for rdp to allow only connections from remote ip only 4) if you have the option to conveniently enable/disable port forwarding only enable when in use and disable when not. Basically with all 4 setup is virtually impossible for hacker can get to access your computer because of so many layers and just not worth it for them and they'll move to easier targets. and yes you WILL have hackers trying to bruteforce into your computer but they need your exact username and exact password. so don't use a common user name like user or admin lol.

  3. if i want to use RDP how can i connect with VPN … pls let me know in details …
    I mean should i connect VPN first and then go for RDP or
    connect to remote desktop and then using a VPN inside that system ?

    pls let me know … thanks in advance

  4. Consider using Review Desktop Gateway. Doesn't put the uncontrolled remote device on your corporate network, doesn't require purchase of extra software (included with Windows), doesn't require help desk to assist users with "complex" VPN configuration on whatever device the user owns. Runs on https port.
