We have a windows webserver running iis behind Juniper firewall. We like to Block admins  from using Microsoft remote desktop connection to this server from outside. Is it possible to make the blocking by Juniper firewall? we only permit admins to use the remote desktop from inside the company not from outside.
thanks

Just block port 3389 on the firewall or remove the existing rule (it's probably an added rule if access is there, normally it's blocked by default).  This will block anyone from outside, but not change access from the internal network.

Go to Policy - Check the rules From Untrust to Trust for Service RDP (3389). If you find it disable.

You also you are the possibility to create a deny rule:
1. Define the service RDP if it is not yet created:
Go to Policy - Policy Elements - Services - Custom
Create a new service:
RDP      TCP src port: 1024-65535, dst port: 3389-3389

2. In the Policy select From: Untrust - To: Trust and click: New
Source Address – ANY
Destination Adress – ip of the server
Service: RDP
Action: Deny

If you make a rule for the outside area this will not affect internal connection. Do not block RDP from the inside lan.

Juniper work with the “zone” not the “interface”. Block the traffic for the zone with the interface connected to the internet. Permit the traffic for the zone with the interface connected to local lan.
