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

I have a server with multiple network interfaces, and I need RDP to only listen for connections on one of them; the server is not a Remote Desktop server, RDP is only used for remote administration.

In Windows Server 2008 R2, I was able to configure this using the Remote Desktop Session Host console; in Windows Server 2012, that console isn't there anymore.

How can I configure this in WS2012?

Not that you want to do it via the registry, but I suspect that HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\WinStations\RDP-Tcp\LanAdapter is still the right place. –  Zoredache May 8 '13 at 16:55
And how could I set that? –  Massimo May 8 '13 at 17:15
Not sure what to set the value to. I just know that is the value that changes on older versions of Windows when you adjust the setting. I figured you might be able to Google for that and find something. –  Zoredache May 8 '13 at 17:27
Did you find the solution? Posting it here might help others (like me) looking for the same thing. –  Paul Feb 13 at 21:19

As far as I know, the Remote Desktop Session Host is no longer exists in Windows Server 2012.

You can find some config of it in Server Manager --> Server Role

There are no roles on this server, it's not a Terminal Server; RDP is only used for remote administration. –  Massimo May 8 '13 at 17:15
Yeah, I know that. I just follow this article technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh921475.aspx Hope this help. –  Gnouc May 8 '13 at 17:17
This is completely unrelated to RDP... –  Massimo May 8 '13 at 17:37
