Set Firewall Scope Remote Desktop (RDP) Windows 2008 Server
I only want connections from one spesific IP address (my own) to be able to access my Windows 2008 Server using Remote Desktop (RDP). I need to configure the Windows Firewall to achieve this.
In "Administrative Tools" - "Windows Firewall with Advanced Security" I click "Inbound Rules". Then I click "Remote Desktop (TCP-In)" and choose "Scope". Then I have 2 boxes: "Local IP Address" and "Remote IP Adress". What is the differense between them?
Is it correct that I should write my IP address in "Remote IP Address" to solve my needs?
