I have my computer set up for remote desktop over internet in NLA mode.
I also want be able to connect with iPad to my computer when im at home, but that isnt possible with NLA activated, unless i pay for some damn expensive apps which i wont.

Is there any way to configure the computer to allow non-NLA connections to my computer if they come from the local network, or do i have to disable NLA completly?

Yes, you'll need to disable NLA, or else pay big bucks for it. Why have the security turned on, then not use it?

well, security would be turned on.. just not when the connection comes from the local network (192.168.0.*). That was my idea atleast. but guess thats not possible then. – trembon Jul 4 '12 at 8:14
