  • Hello support,


    I have Windows 2016 essential server.  I have set up remote access anywhere using a SSL certificate purchased from Go Daddy.  for maintenance I have port 3389 open.  My router is Sonicwall. that is how I access the server through rdp and I know it is not a good idea.  What other alternative's do you recommend?  I do not want to put Team viewer or LogMeIn on the server?  Can I access the server via dashboard?  Also if I have a backup of the server and (windows server essential backup) and I have left the external backup attached to the server in case a ransomeware hits could that backup be compromised?  For that matter if I use Windows backup of the workstation and the external usb drive is attached could that backup be encrypted by the ransomware?.   I appreciate your help.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your question.

    Yes! We can access intranet services of the server via dashboard. We’d designate standard user to get access to the server dashboard and intranet resources within the Anywhere Access tab of account properties as below. However, it requires Domain Admins credential and Authentication certificate on remote clients.


    In addition, for the matter that the third party supports encryption for the windows backup, it depends the compatibility of 3<sup>rd</sup> party products and windows backup. We’d consult the vendor.

    Hope above information can help you.  

    Highly appreciate your effort and time. If you have any question and concern, please feel free to let me know.

    Best regards,

    Michael

  • In addition, by default, remote web access supports to remote desktop via RD Gateway and IIS. Therefore, we could configure security policies on the RD Gateway management so that we can also strengthen the security and encryption.

    Please refer to the following article to see if it helps.

  • Hello Michael,

    Thank you for assisting me.  When I make one of the users an admin, I am still not able to see the server in the computer server tab.  I want to be able to access the the desktop of the server.  Check the backup (backup Exec.), antivirus, etc. 

    Please advise.

    Thanks,

    Jamshid

  • and because it has not been covered yet; yes ransomware will encrypt devices attached to the machine.
