Hello Experts,

I have a Windows 2008 server that serves web pages to around 30 users throughout a normal day.

I am looking for a little advice on securing my server. I noticed that there is often attempts to connect to my server using RDC. Is there any software that can block these attempts or maybe limit the RDC to an IP Range?

My experience is very limited when it comes to Windows servers, so any security advice would be much appreciated.

Thank you,


David
