I recently had en external security audit performed and one of the items listed for remediation is to disable terminal services access to my internet facing surf control email filter.  I'm wondering what the best way to do this would be.  I can't disabled RDP entirely as the server is at another site and I do need to access it from my MPLS network but never from the internet.  What might be the best way to approach this one?

If you are on an MPLS, you don't need to open RDP access from the net, as you can connect through the MPLS internally.
You should just modify the firewall rules and remove the external RDP access to the exchange.

Ok, there is indeed a checkpoint firewall there.  I'm not too familiar with how it works but I'll have a look and see if there is an obvious way to disable RDP from there, thanks!
