Windows Remote Desktop

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

If it's reachable from outside, then it can be dangerous. Our Server's and client's are only accessible through VPN.

Excellent Thanks.

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