    Hello-

    Does anybody know the necessary firewall settings to allow Remote Desktop/Terminal Services connections from outside the Trusted Zone? Normally I'd just put the firewall on Interactive Mode and then set up the rules on the connection attempt, but as of right now I don't have that option.

    Thanks.

    If your question is regarding ports, Remote Desktop uses 3389...

    Impossible without Interactive or Policy-based mode .

    If you want to keep the Automatic mode and only allow Remote Desktop , enable "Policy-based" mode and simulate the automatic one by placing a checkmark on these
    1 allow all outbound traffic in the policy-based mode
    2 allow initiated inbound traffic

    The create a rule Remote Desktop connection
