The preferred method of remote services is through our Remote Desktop servers. Compared with other methods, the Remote Desktop provides remote users with an identical desktop experience to what they would experience on a workstation connected to the internal company network. There are two methods of accessing Remote Desktop services, our High-Port Firewall Rules, or our Remote Desktop Gateway.
These methods cannot be combined. Choose one or the other.
