- How secure is RDP? 10 answers
I have offices in China and HK and for local internet all fine. International connectivity is very slow indeed - not usable. They need to access a terminal server in the UK and do this by using SSLVPN to the UK. From HK it is very slow and China not usable.
So one solution is to buy in some international bandwidth (not cheap) or use a hosted server at a datacentre. The idea would be that they RDP to the server in the datacentre and then off that server use SSLVPN to the UK to use the application on the terminal server. I have tried it and it works ok.
My concern is the connection from the machine to the datacentre server only using RDP. I am either restricted by the great firewall of China or the hosting company.
Any thoughts if this is secure enough? I have changed the RDP port and also secured it down to certain IP's.
