  • Hi lumicapi,

    Yes, we can use on-premises MFA to authenticate domain users to connect server via RDP.

    To achieve this, we should follow those steps:

    1.        Create Azure MFA provider (require Azure subscription)
    2.         Create/install Azure MFA server
    3.        Configure RD Gateway servers as RADIUS server

    Here is an image about how it works:

    For more details on the configuration process, check out Remote Desktop Gateway and Azure Muti-Factor Authentication Server using RADIUS.

    By the way, here is a blog about use windows server 2012 R2 RD Gateway with MFA.

    Best regards,

  • At what cost? Is this practical for businesses with fewer than 20 users?
