  1. It took me a very long time to get this video done, but I'm so glad I did! My previous two videos – How to set up remote desktop & How to secure remote desktop – were done on different operating systems and at different times. This time, I scripted and story-boarded the content, and produced the video with Closed Captioning and other best practices as defined by Camtasia and TubeBuddy. The thing to keep in mind is that this video is NOT a recommendation or endorsement to set up RDP port forwarding on your router, rather it's an exercise in answering the question: How can I access my home PC while I'm away without any special software. Try it out but please RDP responsibly 🙂

  2. Is my RDP Connection now fully encrypted? Someone told me that when it's not encrypted, everyone could see my Password when I log into my PC.

  4. Jerry do you have a tutorial on how to set up a personal VPN? This tutorial was great and useful for accessing my server PC while away at college but I would like to set up a personal VPN so I can avoid my college seeing what I’m accessing at all times

  5. As an additional level of security you could add a more specific rule on the remote router. The rule would be to allow <remote_IP:port> to connection to the target network's router. Of course your router would need to be able to support the network rule, and you might need to change it unless you have a static IP from your provider or use ddns. Great video overall Jerry!

  6. I'm stuck on Error Code: 0x204 for external connections and 0x104 for internal connections, can anyone help? My port forwarding rule is set up correctly and so is my inbound rule in the windows firewall so I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong

  8. Hi Jerry Thank you for your nice video. I've a question, If I enable the windows 10 Pro default vpn server, then should the router forward the port also the target PC? Can you please explain the concept of vpn working principle in the case of secure remote access? Also on that case should the router have a public ip address to access the target PC?
    Can you please make another video on vpn cpncept?
    Thanks again.

  10. Very nicely done! I had RDP setup already but it wasn't secure and I was getting alerts from Malwarebytes that 3389 was compromised. Thank you and I hope all is good now. You saved me a lot of pain if I got hacked!

  11. Jerry! I have been struggling to make RDP work for days with all this WFH set-up during lockdowns… that is till I came to this video of yours. Thanks a lot!

  12. What a good man you are, Jerry! Thank you for a very thorough, detailed, yet not crowded tutorial. Everything is straight to the point without anything missing or misleading. I can only wonder how much time it took you to compile such a great video. Like and a sub. Cheers, mate.

  13. well explained, but when I follow all the steps to set up, i cont even connect to my computer with my remote desktop app anymore.
    I was able to connect with my pc within my network, but now either my network or public-facing ip address works……..
    I believe I have follow all the steps, but now when i connect to my pc, it sayspc is not turn on, unable to connect…….
    so annoying now, the function is totally disable now, not sure what should i do

  14. When I uncheck the box allow Remote Desktop “public”, my target pc will not enable Remote Desktop. Secondly, I can’t access to the router setting because I am using a vps. For security reason I am using webpage on the vps website and an iPhone app to use the vps computer. Still won’t be able to use Microsoft Remote Desktop connection.

  15. at 10:23 – entering my public facing IP, followed by a colon, followed by the port. – doesn't connect. Not sure why not… Any suggestions. The computer I'm trying to remote in from is windows 7, would that make a difference?

  16. NOW!! I understand Port Forwarding! Which, obviously, I did not before. Excellent explanation, it's a nice feeling to have the lightbulb of understanding come on. Honestly, as fast as you moved along, I understood and feel confident I can accomplish this and have security. Thank you. Go have a beer… I will! Oh yeah… subscribed.

  17. Dude! GREAT instructional video. You know stuff! I haven't touched a Windows PC in a long time but you walked me through this procedure perfectly.
    One note: the latest Windows 10 Pro appears to have the 128 encryption setting inside the Remote Desktop "Make my PC discoverable…" settings, rather than in that security folder which I couldn't find in the tree. Encryption seems to be on by default. Thanks again.

  18. Great video. By following below mentioned steps, one can remote desktop on Windows 10:

    Make sure you have Windows 10 Pro. To check, go to Start > Settings > System > About and look for Edition. …
    When you're ready, select Start > Settings > System > Remote Desktop, and turn on Enable Remote Desktop.
    Make note of the name of this PC under How to connect to this PC. You'll need this later.

  19. Thank you for such nice expaination. Normally I work with VMware and RDP to VM's over VPN, but never did it secure and over the public internet. Someday I will try it out just for myself 🙂
    Awesome job!
