How can I enable just machines in one subnet (i.e. my home PC and the home network as a whole) to rdp to my servers and nothing else?


In Windows Firewall with Advanced Security, find the Remote Desktop (TCP-In) rule and open it. Navigate to the Scope tab and set the Remote IP address field to whatever you'd like it to be. Make sure you're applying it to the correct network profile as well (all, domain, private, or public).

    @ChrisS It was the pen from the snipping tool! Though, I am also a pro at mspaint. – MDMarra Feb 20 '12 at 19:36

You can setup an inbound rule within your windows firewall to only allow the ranges of your network to use RDP into your servers.
