Hi Guys

I how recently noticed that i am able to use Microsoft's MSTSC.EXE (RDP) to gain access to servers over the internet without any special configuration.

Can someone confirm whether this is a security risk or not?

Regards

big

Excellent Thanks.

My servers are also only accessible via VPN outside of my network.
