Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a Windows 2008 R2 Server with RDP access enabled. However I'm not limited access by IP.

Why..

I'm a 2 person company so all server issues I have to care of.

Last weekend I was out hiking and I got call from a client that their site was down. Using an iPhone (with the RDP client app) I was able to connect to the server recycle the IIS app pool and save the day from all from the top of a mountain.

However this is not very secure. I need to limit RDP access by IP address. However the iPhone does not have a static address, it changes all the time. The only thing static about it is that the host name always contains ".mycingular.net"

Is there anyway I can limit RDP access by hostnames (with wildcards, e.g." *.mycingular.net)

I believe the answer is no, there is no way to do this using what is built-in to windows. You could setup a VPN between the iPhone and your network.
