I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If I understand you correctly, yes. We access our various Server 2012 machines with Windows Remote Desktop Connection. It works very well.

That's how I was trying to set it up but I keep getting a lot of traffic trying to access my server. I can't find any info that explains the proper way to set it up. I'm not educated on servers so my knowledge is minimal. Looking for a step by step process to accomplish this procedure covering all things associated with this process

What are you trying to run on the Server and how are you trying to access?  Remote access to the server normally requires a VPN of some sort. That is how we do it.
