Remote Desktop and Windows Firewall
Posted on 2013-06-13
I am still working on the Remote Desktop access for the users of our computer network at church. I have figured out the problem with those using Windows XP. The Firewall was blocking them from access and I had to manually go in and give the Remote Desktop application access through the firewall. I am now working on two Windows 7 computers that the users are not able to use from their homes. I checked the firewall settings and the settings for Remote Desktop is set for access from our network, but not from a VPN or public. This is set by a group policy which I assume must be a group policy from our server because I check the local group policies and none were enabled. We are using MS SBS Server 2011 on our server. Can anyone tell me how to make the group policy allow access via a VPN, needless to say I still did not want access through a public network. Any help or information you can give me will be appreciated.
