I have recently setup a windows server 2003 machine at home. Its mainly used for file sharing internally etc however I want to be able to connect to it remotely via RDP. To do this I would have to leave port 3389 open and forwarded to the windows server 2003 machine. I have a static IP address and was wondering how secure it is to just leave a port like this open all the time?
I have set secure passwords on user accounts but was just wanting some feedback. I'm well aware that there are third party applications which would allow connecting with this port closed but just wanting to keep it simple if its safe to do so.
