    Restricting RDP to certain IP addresses on my LAN...


    Edition Windows 10 Pro
    Version 21H2
    OS build 19044.2728

    The subject line pretty much says it all. I want the one machine I connect to using RDP to only accept incoming connections from two computers on my internal network. I've consulted several articles online and in spite of editing the existing firewall rules to only allow for the IP addresses of the two computers involved, the machine is still accepting RDP requests from other computers outside the selected IP range.

    Do I need to compose a new rule? Am I allowed to edit the existing rule given that there is a box at the top saying it is a predefined rule and certain aspects of its properties (which ones?) cannot be modified? Do I need to reboot the computer I'm making the changes on for them to take effect? I was given to understand that firewall rule modifications took effect instantly.

    Any questions please ask and any help appreciated.

    Wow! I appear to have stumped the forum!

    Well, I may have turned up something elsewhere. Good thing too it would seem!

    No one is stumped. What you are wanting to do is so simple that even you can figure it out.

    If it were that simple I wouldn't have asked. I described the issues I was having following the instructions I could find online which weren't working.

    So you're telling me that you treat questions you deem "unworthy" of a response with evident disdain? Classy forum!

    Everyone has to learn some time. No one is born with the knowledge--including you.

    How about one of you "gurus" there delete my account in this forum? I've no further use for it.
