    It doesn't matter from where they are connecting, because in order for them to connect they need to do so by specifying local Administrator account username/password.

    Which one of the local accounts is used for RDP?

    - - - Updated - - -

    Unless I'm wrong on how RDP over internet or intranet works?
    newly created "Accounting" account, no admin privileges, just standard user

    I wouldn't know! you are probably right

    Is there "Remote Desktop Services roles" installed on that server?
    If yes, it works differently ofc; but surely remote user still needs to authenticate somehow, normaly this is by local username/pwd.

    true but id still like to limit it, so not just anyone from any pc, that has the remote address can log in, just "John" from "HOME-PC"
