We have a main office and 3 branch offices. Each branch office is connected with a lan-to-lan VPN connection.
We are having some discussion about what would be best practise regarding RDP clients and if they should be standalone machines or connected to the domain.
Standalone machines, with just a RDP client are more difficult to manage, but performance wise seem to be more faster than when joined to a domain.
Domain connected machines need special policys (disable folder redirection etc), but since they are connected can be managed and monitored. The performance however seems to be lower since DNS requests are all done over the VPN tunnel for example.
This, and other arguments got me wandering what's best practice and are there any recommended settings.
Network Monitoring is essential to ensure that computer systems and network devices are running. Use PRTG to monitor LANs, servers, websites, applications and devices, bandwidth, virtual environments, remote systems, IoT, and many more. PRTG is easy to set up & use.
