I made a very simple script to enable Remote Desktop connections on a computer:
# Allow Remote Desktop connections (Get-WmiObject -Class "Win32_TerminalServiceSetting" -Namespace root\cimv2\terminalservices).SetAllowTsConnections(1) # Allow low-secutiry connections (Get-WmiObject -class "Win32_TSGeneralSetting" -Namespace root\cimv2\terminalservices -Filter "TerminalName='RDP-tcp'").SetUserAuthenticationRequired(0)
Now, I wish to finish it, adding a rule for Remote Desktop into Windows Firewall. How I can accomplish this?
BTW: Using Windows 7
Today I enable Remote Desktop manually via "Remote Settings" on "Control Panel\System and Security\System". Doing this way, Windows automatically adds a Firewall Rule to allow incoming remote desktop connections. Fine.
However, using my script above, this last step is not done. On this very configuration screen Windows shows me a reminder message "You must enable the Windows Firewall exception for Remote Desktop"
The question is exactly that: How I can automate this step? Today I do this manually on every computer I install.
