    Private Firewall settings blocking RDP access


    Hi all,
    Cant seem to have both Firewall Private network settings and RDP working together. Here's my setup.
    Note it works fine when I have the firewall as in the image,, but once I swtich to 'Turn On Windows Defender Firewall in Private Network settings, RDP gets blocked. (tried with/without 'Network Level Authentication')
    Is there something else I'm missing?
    Thanks in advance.

    Gerry

    Hello @GerryAbbot
    Welcome to Tenforums.com :)

    Can i please make a suggestion why not to use RDP ?
    And i'll quote myself here on why.

    Hello artmanphoto, are you using the built in remote software that comes with windows 10 ?
    I too use remote software, so can i suggest you change to one of the following.
    Because the remote software that comes with windows is very insecure.

    Teamviewer
    To use 2 step authenticator with teamviewer go here
    Youtube Video here

    Splashtop
    To use 2 step authenticator with splashtop go here
    Youtube Video here

    Radmin
    Does not have 2 step authentication as far as i know.
    But it does have IP Filter, very high security.

    All 3 have very high security,
    Splashtop & teamviewer both have so you can add two factor authentication with google authenticatior.
    Personally i prefer radmin :)

    Thread found here
    How To Create Two Factor Authentication for Remote Desktop - Windows 10 Forums

    Except for being more secure, you won't have any port issues as teamviewer & splashtop don't require you to open ports, radmin could be eventually have to be portforward.

    I would also like to suggest AnyDesk that i currently use with rAdmin. Very simple & easy to use.
