I have a Windows Server Terminal 2019 and its running as

  • DC/DNS
  • Terminal Server

Its running on a VM in the cloud and is reachable through public IP. I dont want (cannot) build up a firewall in a second VM and build up a whole "network"....

I have configured Remote Desktop Gateway and using signed certificates.

I configured RD for RDWeb and its works. But how I close the "normal" rdp? Because How I understand Remote Dektop through RDWeb works no direct on port 3389 like the "Normal".

Or is it too "naive" and safety risk is to high?

  • "But how I close the "normal" rdp?" - put the server behind a firewall, such as any business should.

  • A domain controller acting as a terminal server is a recipe for disaster. Exposing it to the Internet is just the icing on the cake.

    @Wulf this is not answerable without knowing much more about your environment. But please don't add more details here, ask another question if you need; this is quickly getting too broad.
