Is RDP-connections (Remote desktop) by default encrypted in any way?
To connect to a terminal server from home I use to install a VPN connection for my customers, but sometimes it would be great just to open port 3389 in the firewall and go right there.
But is the traffic encrypted in any way, or is password e.t.c. sent in clear text then?
The point is to be able to log in from anywhere without having to install some expensive software or similar.
Or what is your suggestions?
