I am running a Windows 2008 Server and I have installed ts_block on it to help block RDP brute force attempts on the server.
Question 1: What I wanted to know is there any benefit for me using ts_block because my server only allows users to RDP with the proper IP Address? This is setup in the Windows Firewall.
Question 2: I don't think they can get in because they don't have the correct IP to even but when the come to my server the hit the hell out of it causing it to take up memory and cpu power and making the server slow.
Questions 3: Would a hardware firewall help prevent them from even getting to my server and is that the better anwser then using ts_block?
