Server 2008 Firewall- If I turn it on will it automatically disable Remote Desktop Connection?
Posted on 2012-03-13
Server 2008 standard -built in firewall is turned off. If I turn the firewall on, will in automatically disable my Remote Desktop Connection? I am new to Server 2008 and administration. I need to turn on the built in firewall. I had a developer configure my entire website, (SQ L, Exchange 2010, almost everything) Almost everything except the firewall he got a new job and had to take it. I have it hosted and its impossible to get to if I lose the Remote Desktop Connection. So if I enable the firewall could this cause the remote desktop connection to be unusable? Or can I just simply turn it on and it will not disable the RD connection? I am flying by the seat of my pants guys! Need help.
