I've just bought a home server with Windows Server 2012 R2 on it. When I first got it the following rules were set up in firewall inbound rules:
- Remote Desktop - User Mode TCP in (Domain, Private) - Ticked.
- Remote Desktop - User Mode TCP in (Public) - Not ticked.
So I could not remote to my home server from home PC (both connected to router).
I ticked "public" and was able to connect OK.
So, my PC is in the default WORKGROUP and my server is in the default WORKGROUP. (i.e. computer, properties, system). Is there anything else I need to do so that I can remote to server without ticking Public? Something in Network/sharing centre, etc.? Is there a risk with ticking "Public"?
