Re: Rds on the internet

At a previous employer, the CEO was an old-school developer. He put RDP directly online, but on a different port, because that was "safe", because nobody would guess that RDP was running on a different port, or heaven forbid, port scan us...

After he left, the first thing we did was bring it behind the firewall, so you needed to VPN in first, with 2FA.
