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?

  1. Most likely your Windows Server Firewall does not have any exceptions for the port you are trying to connect to.

  2. RDP can be secure/encrypted using Network Level Authentication (NLA). See http://www.howtogeek.com/175087/how-to-enable-and-secure-remote-desktop-on-windows/ and https://security.berkeley.edu/node/94?destination=node/94
