how secure is remote desktop connection
Posted on 2006-04-24
I have a client who wants to be able to check his email from anywhere. Right now, when he logs in from home, he has to use a VPN connection and then I have him use XP Pro's Remote Desktop Connection to access his workstation. Well now he wants to access it from anywhere, so I enabled the 3com to point their ip address to his system.
(actually their are two systems that are accessed. Their public ip goes to one and their pubicip:3390 goes to another. I was just wondering how safe this is in general. I still have him use his VPN/RDC from home, which he is on most of the time)
