Since yesterday I'm running windows server 2012. Now I've got 2 questions:

  • I'm running sabnzbd on that server and when I want to connect to the server on my laptop via chrome. I type the ip:port in my webbrowser the page doesn't load. Do I need to configure something on the server?

  • I normally use linux so now that I got windows I've got the possibility to use the build in RDP. This isn't over a secure line I read. I just don't find a tutorial on how to achieve that it is secure.

Can someone point me in the right direction here?

  2. RDP can be secure/encrypted using Network Level Authentication (NLA). See and
