Access Workstation in a Server-Based Terminal Services Setup
Posted on 2011-03-02
We setup a Terminal Services server. A question has come up with regards to security when clients are connected to a RDP session.
Scenario is as follows…
- RDP server resides in Baltimore, MD
- Client X is in Miami with a laptop connected to Baltimore via RDP
- Client Y is in New York with a laptop connected to Baltimore via RDP
- The only connection option that Client X and Y have ever used on their computers is RDP. These laptops have never been joined to the Windows domain (in Baltimore), have never been connected to the local network in Baltimore, have never connected to Baltimore via a VPN, etc
Question – If Client X and Y both have active RDP sessions to the server in Baltimore at the same time is it possible for client X to see data housed on Client Y laptop or vice-versa?
Any support links that support your answer is appreciated.
Please advise. Thank you.
